for my printmaking assignment, we had to do a reduction print about the apocalypse. a reduction print is where you use the same block to do every color and you start with the lightest color first, and then cut away where you want that color to remain and do the next one, repeat, etc. i did a five color print which was really laborious but i'm so happy with how it came out. i took the apocalypse and decided to do something kind of fun, but still morbid. i based the squid creature off of the idea of a Humboldt squid... these squid are very interesting yet not that researched sea creatures... they are so quizzical to scientists that they may just take over the world one day. mwahaha!
