I love it Richard. Dix is one of my favorites. Beautifully creepy stuff.

Good morning, guys!. I really appreciate the comments, makes me feel like I am doing the right thing. The exciting part of this printmaking process is the unknown outcome of the final. I try and give myself 3 hours of uninterrupted drawing time and this piece was coming along great and then I over inked the bottom section of the plate and the hand got really dark and it looked like crap. To be dramatic this print became a plane in a nosedive and the only way to pull out was to ink the heck out of the bottom and push the hand really hard. At this point I was undecided if I had saved the piece so I left the studio to air out a bit. Rented a video, bought some groceries and came back to the studio and gave the hand one more heavy hit of ink. I am really happy that you like the hand, Kyle. Thanks again folks for the supportive comments.
