Mystique Series - carving begins again - win a free print!

Posted by Dave Bull at 3:56 AM, July 18, 2010

For the previous pair of prints in the Mystique series, I didn't show many progress photos, as I kind of wanted to keep the images a bit of a surprise for the collectors. But if I do that every time, it doesn't leave much for this RoundTable, so this time we'll keep it completely open, so you can follow along as I build this pair ...

But having said that, I don't see why I should make it too easy for you ... and now that I think about it, it might be fun to make this into a bit of a contest. Who can be the first to identify each of the two prints in this pair?

The first person to post a comment at the bottom of this page with the correct identification of either of the images will receive a complimentary copy of that print (when it is finished, of course). If you are a current collector, and would thus be receiving it anyway, you can have the option of having an extra copy (to perhaps give as a gift), or we'll simply make your regular copy 'no charge', as you wish.

You have two ways to inspect the block that I am working on - either via the Woodblock Webcam, or the progress images that I will post here as I go along.

Here's the first one (this is from the horizontal image of the pair):

You may think that this doesn't give you a lot to go on, but actually, I think it does. You should certainly be able to tell the genre, perhaps even the artist. And the position in the image of the object depicted is a very large hint about the type of design ... Anyway, enough for now. Good luck!
