New Linoleum Block Print - Port of Oakland & Deconstruction of the Bay Bridge

A couple times a week, I'll spot the 77-year old, double-decked eastern span of the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge in the distance. A new, seismically safer span has been constructed and they're currently demolishing the old section.

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.
