Such a rare honor to collab w/ the incomparable Carl Baker (Ontario, Canada). Time for some roots gothic industrial Great Lakes "dirty concrete" copy art-based ... whatever. Many thanks to Carl for participating in the series. The series is documented at Asemic Front 2.

David, for me posting in this group is the same as always. But in other parts of the iuoma platform I can't upload at all and/or encounter bizarre glitches. Could be some software incompatibility. It can be tedious posting on this site. A lot of iuoma folks are on fb. I have to grit my teeth coming here.See you elsewhere. dvs

I can not figure out how do you post to this group an image?--

BTW...I'd probably give myself a c- for this piece. Rubber stamping is not the greatest, and getting used to working with India Ink. Glad to practice, though...

An enhancement of my original digital (word processing) piece.
