Ok I FINALLY got a photo of this
It's behind glass (teehee my proff put it in the hall case!!!) so I couldn't get a better one than this.
It's an interpretation of the myth of Apollo and Daphne.

The image area is 24 x 36
Done on umounted battleship grey linoleum.
It took me about a month to carve but I only worked on it a few hours a night up until the end where I spent pretty much 2 whole days straight finishing it in time to print it.
It was the final for my relief printmaking class.
My hand was cramped for about 2 weeks after all my different prints were done.

Anyway picture!

Wow, that is amazing - I can tell you must have put so much work into it!  Have you done any prints with it?  I want to see more!  I love this myth - and you did a wonderful job.

The only prints I have are the one in the case that I had to turn in (Prof is keeping it for the print shop) and a messed up print that I'm going to turn into a book when I take bookmaking in the fall.  I'm going to try to print at least half of the rest of the edition of 10 this summer.
