This image was created from a photo I shot of Vaska many years ago. Vaska was a tabby and came with the house. He was quite a character. This hand-pulled, hand-colored collagraph and is ready to be matted and framed. This piece could easily fit a standard 11" x 14" frame. I have included a shot of it framed to give you an idea of what it could look like hanging on your wall. Following is a shot of my press. It is quite something to move. The rollers weigh 200 lbs each.

A brief description of my technique follows. The collagraph takes its name from collage. It is an impression made from a board or block in which three-dimensional elements are glued. I usually use two plates in my process. The first one is to pull the black and white image with texture and the second plate is a way for me to add color. Many people like the black and whites as they are so I have decided to work on some editions that are just black and white. In this case I have mixed some burnt umber ink with the black to give it a warmer feel.
