I thought I would keep this blog diary of my work as I embark upon an 8-month sabbatical working on relief engraving and painting. I realize it is a bit self-centered to post this to the world, but it may be worthwhile capturing my work, and making a record of my progress.

In the Spring of 2009, I will be on sabbatical, working on paintings and relief engravings. Relief engraving is the "new" wood engraving—in that the traditional wood for engraving, Boxwood,is so scarce and expensive that it has been replaced with Resingrave, a synthetic resin which carves like wood at a much reduced cost, and sizes that can be larger than traditional wood engraving. My work will be on a series of portraits of historical scoundrels—individuals who have shown incredible industry and despotism within their lifetimes.
