Chinese New Year Dragon Block Prints

I had another print exchange come up in January and I just hadn't had a chance to get the images up! So here are the blocks and final prints! (If you want one, they're available for sale in my shop... ^_^)

I like the gray version the best, I think... I'm also fond of the crimson on green, but it's difficult to tell the darker color is red based because of the way the ink dried.

^ I love how the lines transferred in these proofs!

^ The main block before cutting!

^ This is the one that went into the exchange. I named it "Yang" in honor of the Chinese lore. I hand drew the cloud outlines on these, but I'm going to finish cutting out the cloud block and do some more runs! Maybe even some reduction style ones with the clouds too. Those will have to be the *deluxe* dragons. :)
