Lockwood Dennis

I just stumbled upon the wonderfully retro woodcuts of Lockwood Dennis. I can't find much information about him, other than the fact that he was born in 1937 and lives and works in the Pacific Northwest. I love his palette, his use of intense color, and the nostalgic deco styling of his cityscapes.

Update, January 24, 2013: Sadly, Lockwood Dennis passed away in late 2012. His family has put together a web site of all of his work, some 800 images spanning a 45-year career. The site is www.lockwooddennis.com.
