Better Brave Than Bored

Two things going on right now:

1) Puzzle Print: Robot inflicted apocalypse done on linoleum. It's roughly 12"x15" and the catch is that it is cut into segments that are inked separately and then reassembled for the final roll through the press. Then the robot himself is print as a separate second layer.

2) Suicide Print: The final project for my relief printmaking class. It's going to be a big one, most likely a woodcut around the 16"x20" or 18"x24" range. "Better Brave Than Bored" has been my tentative press motto (I've also been working on a good press name as well, something catchy at least), and I'd like to bring it to life with some exciting imagery. It's a minimum of six colors, which will be a lot of work even though it's all on the one surface... I'd also like to make sure the final layer (the final black layer) will be something that can stand alone and be printed independent of the color later.
