Survivor

I’m comfortable leaving this image open to interpretation… I found this little drawing of a deer in a sketchbook, but I’ve no recollection of drawing it. After cutting it out on a tiny linoleum block, I started a second block that incorporated my long-time fascination with fraktur – iconic abstractions of flora and fauna (&c) which developed uniquely within early Pennsylvania German settlements as decor on intra-community documents.


Both color blocks were registered, inked, and printed by hand, rather than on a press. As such, there are slight variations per print.
