A tribute to Mr. Boris Karloff in his most famous role as the Frankenstein Monster! (ooOOoo)

So...i decided to give art to my dad for christmas but since he is a professional painter ( i wanted to make sure i gave him something even he would be impressed with.

This is a pretty advanced lino relief reduction print. All together there are 6 layers including the paper and each print took at LEAST one hour to do since it took me about 3 hours to PRINT each layer. I started out by carving out the desired white areas, then printed light green. Then i carved out my desired light green areas,rolled a deep green on the plate and printed it directly on the green. I did the same process for the forrest green and black green and was about to print black before i realized I didn't need to. So i ended up cutting the plate so all i had left was the background, inking it white and printing it. I started with an edition of 22 and ended up with 15. It's also a HUGE plate for a beginner 8x11 and i made the mistake of using water-base ink which is a PAIN to get to roll evenly. HOWEVER i think it came out just awesome.

Frankenstein is my dad and best friend's favorite character so he's gunna be their christmas gift. :D

I'm pretty proud of this one
