On July 8, 2012; the world lost a New Orleans legend. Lionel Batiste, "Uncle Lionel". as he was known. I created this reduction style block print as a memorial. The image is 8 x 10 printed on 9 x 12 mulberry paper.

this is the first pass, a background gradient.


The second pass.


The third and final pass.


Final product.


From wikipedia, "Uncle" Lionel Batiste (February 1, 1931 – July 8, 2012) was a jazz and blues musician and singer from New Orleans. He began his music career at the age of 11 playing bass drum with the Square Deal Social & Pleasure Club. He was the bass drummer, vocalist and assistant leader of the Treme Brass Band; known for his kazoo playing and singing as well, and has recorded a cd as a vocalist.

This is my second attempt at the reduction method. My first was Jammaster Jay, you can find a thread for that one on craftster as well.
Comment and critiques appreciated.
