EPIC woodcut in progress—38”x96” (that’s EIGHT FEET wide!) This will be finished by September 22, 2018 to be printed with @biginkprints @airpgh in Pittsburgh.  Follow on Instagram for the most recent updates!

The scene is the classical cityscape of Prague, an addition to the great collection of portraits of “Golden Prague”/“Zlata Praha”

The story of Rudy and Eva, Czechs who left the country after surviving the worst of World War II in concentration camps throughout Poland, Germany and the Czech Republic, inspired the origins of this piece, an ode to their family’s ancestral home. They are heroes whose story of unlikely survival is rooted in the enormous love they feel for each other.

As our own world descends into anxiety and uncertainty, I felt it was time to tell this tale and maybe find relevant lessons we can still learn from it.  The Czech national anthem is “Where is My Home”—knowing that so many people today cannot answer this question is a real motivator to make something memorable, relevant, and worthwhile.

I will have two available copies of this piece on September 22 (my 39th birthday), courtesy of Big Ink Prints, and those two special first printings are what I know I will have for sale so far.  I am asking 3000 dollars each for these prints, which measure 42”x100” paper size/38”x96” block/image size. I will label them something like “First Printing” in the lower left corner.

As always, I love talking to interested people about the work I’m doing, but am especially asking for your feedback on this print. I am also happy to go into great detail about the content of the image.
