Ice Melt Redux
Although I have the blocks carved for a print about transgender that I was working on before I moved, I can't quite get the energy to keep going with it right now. I'm anxious to try out my new studio, but I want to do a print that isn't very fussy while I get the feel of the new space. An article in this morning's paper caught my eye. It was about new predictions by scientists at the University of Arizona that in the next century sea levels will rise by one meter (39 inches) no matter what actions we take to try to halt it. Some scientists say it will happen as soon as 50 years from now. This particular study showed maps of United States coastal areas and how they would be affected by a 1-meter rise in sea level. It looks truly catastropic.
I was never happy with the print I did about global warming, so today I started a new one. As usual, I'll take you through the steps. Tonight I planned the design and tomorrow I'll transfer the drawing to the blocks and hopefully start carving.
