YAGAZAP!

Here's my print that will be going into the Fantagraphics Beasts! Print show at the Fantagraphics store in Seattle this month. It's a woodcut print with gouache painting on top. I was inspired by my old highschool demons so I picked out one of the more demonic creatures from my Beast Book 2 beasties to elaborate on. I made 7 of these, 5 of which are going to the show. I'll probably sell the remaining two on my blog. Concerning the name Yagazap, it isn't in reference to any fictional demon, just something I made up.

Also, this past Friday I had to go to Hobby Lobby to get a sheet of paper for the prints, they have a decent selection of quality papers in the back sitting on a rack. I think I picked up a sheet of Arches cold press watercolor with heavy texture or something to that effect, anyway.. Black Friday you know. Walking into the store I was surrounded by a horde of zombie like old people waltzing towards the entrance, no doubt on their way to buy the most ridiculous crap in the world to fill their homes with. And what the hell, the damn paper wasn't even on sale! I guess if I came there to buy wooden sculptures of elephants sitting on tractors or something retarded like that I would have got a good deal, haha.

When you become aware of the white in the background suddenly the whole picture starts to shine and becomes magical around the red parts.
