Obama Linocut


I’m racing against the clock trying to get my linocut dedication to Barack Obama done in time for Tuesday’s historic inauguration. The mouth region needs more definition but I’m a little timid to go there for fear of wrecking the whole thing, so I’ll take it bit by bit. Also, the view of earth from space that I put in the background needs work since it may not be immediately obvious at first glance what it is. Of course that shape suggests other symbolism as well.


  1. The line work on the shirt and collar have a great movement!
    I bet the prints from this look great.

  2. Hi, Yes the lines worked out okay except I keep wondering if I shouldn’t have cut away more and lighten his face a bit more.

    Hard to go back if you end up over cutting!
