There are some pieces of artwork that just beg to never be finished. For all intensive purposes, my November 2009 Berube-Bug should have been one of those pieces.
If I was a few years younger, had less patience, or wasn't such a stubborn fool, this piece of linoleum would have ended up tossed out of the window as late as last night when I committed to finally printing it after starting it almost 6 months ago.
Based on a trip to Virginia for Thanksgiving, the image was a… Continue

I've decided that this will be my final Berube-Bug as part of my ongoing Berube-Bug mailart call. Having missed November, it became apparent that I can no longer guarantee a new bug each and every month.
If you've sent a bug for each month, November and December, I will reciprocate with 2 post cards, one will be my final B-Bug, one will be the most recent linocut I produced.
Thank you all for your continued interest and correspondence, I will continue to participate in… Continue

I had it in my head that my July bug was going to be some 2-headed creature depicting my state of mind for the past month. At the last minute, while checking out a fellow mail artist MICK BOYLE'S
site, I discovered that he was starting a 2-month mailart call with "Radish"
as a theme. The rest is history.
As soon as I create a colored version, I'll post that as well.

I decided to do a 2-color print for this months Berube-Bug, and I'm not sure what the reasoning was behind adding all of the baby bugs to the "Mommy", but all of the coverage and oversaturation of "OctoMom" may have seeped into my subconciousness as I was drwaing this.
Below is documentation of the process of what it entails to create a 2-color linocut print.

For this months addition to the Berube-Bug mailart project I decided to go a slightly different route.

Here is a brief definition from Wikipedia of what the Chine-Colle' technique of printmaking entails.
"Chine-collé is a special technique in printmaking in which the image is transferred to a… Continue
