I Like This Better
Thanks for your comments on my last post, and for following along. This making-mistakes-in-public thing is humbling. Heck, moku hanga is humbling -- there are an infinite number of ways to go wrong. I think that's why I like it.
Here's a whole new version of the Iceberg print. I call it "Known and Unknown." I find the symbol of the iceberg itself very potent: the melting of the polar ice cap, a representation of how little of the total climate change picture we can really see and the potential size of the problem, as well as the associations we all have with icebergs and the Titanic. Because the symbol and shape itself is so powerful, there's no need to overstate what's going on by using odd colors. I decided to keep it simple and let the shape itself have center stage.
