The Deep Blue Sea Woodcut Series
9.5" x 12.5" Woodcut on Pale Pink Arturo Paper
Paul Roden & Valerie Lueth, 2008.

This is an AP (Artist Proof) of our woodcut print "Explorer Capsule 3000". The 100 copies we hand printed for the second edition are now SOLD OUT, but we have a few quality APs left that are titled + signed up as well. (They just have AP in the bottom left corner instead of a number)

This color woodcut print is one from our new woodcut series "THE DEEP BLUE SEA" and features a bright red submarine foraging in a kelp bed at the bottom of the sea. The retro style submarine (model name "Explorer Capsule 3000") has metallic gold headlights on full blast for clear ocean vision. Paper is a delicate, pale seashell pink.

This is NOT a digitally reproduced print. After drawing our original designs on birch plywood, we hand-carve the blocks. We print the finished woodblocks through a press onto paper in our living room printshop.

Due to popularity and interest, "Explorer Capsule 3000" has been reprinted in a 2nd Edition of 100 prints. Each print in the edition is signed, titled and numbered. The second edition is noted by a Roman numeral beside the print's edition number. Prints are packaged in clear, resealable sleeves with coroplast backing. Ready for gifting, propping up on a shelf, or safely transporting until framed!
