I'm thrilled to be included in Collector Art Shop's group exhibition for the month of July. It's at their wonderful new Jack London Square location. I have a selection of linocut prints in the show.

One of my most popular linocut prints over the years has been this small West Coast map. I've always wanted to make a much bigger one and it's finally done. This new map block print features the airport codes of major cities on the West Coast, including San Francisco (SFO), San Diego (SAN), Los Angeles (LAX), Portland (PDX) and Seattle (SEA). The limited-edition print comes in two different colors and was made by the reduction method (on the first block) plus a second block for the text and flight path design.

The Bay Bridge being demolished
I have a soft spot for the aesthetics of the older one and I think it's fascinating to watch how they orchestrate the take down of such a huge bridge. Before it's all gone, I wanted to make a print. It's a project I've been excited about for a while but it took a lot of sketching and planning for it to come to fruition. This is how the linocut print turned out and it's available in my Etsy store.
