The second impression (black) is Poe. It was a tough one. With such a small image area, there was little room for detail. I wasn't happy with the outcome; I lost the resemblance somewhere along the way. I might start again with a larger plate. Or, I might make some equally small Poe-related icons and print a little series using those squares.

Started following Kevin Smith but had to immediately block him... I was overwhelmed. No wonder he's got so few movies on the go these days: he's too busy entertaining his legion of followers.
However, I was glad to find cartoonist Tom Gauld and illustrator Mattias Adolfsson. Two of my favs.
The sketchbook doodle above illustrates my first impression. But the jury's still out. If your so inclined, I'm @doodlepalooza.

Finished a small set of prints with the Detective lino: four in total with a little watercolour zest. Available in the shop.
Gardening tomorrow... don't care if winter has another sneak-attack planned. I'll work in the greenhouse if I have to.
