This piece was commissioned by a couple who had saved a whole bunch of ticket stubs from over the years.
I tried to use the more masculine tickets (Tickets to sports games etc.) on the Mans clothing and the feminine stubs (i.e. the musical Wicked ) on the Lady
They also gave me paint swatches to work with from a recent home improvement project at their home, which I used for her arms and dress and his boots. Good colors thankfully!
All in all it was a fun project to do, a task to keep the stubs in good order and readable so they still hold nostalgic value for them.
Here is the Linoleum block carved and ready to go
The block locked in the bed, inked up and ready to print
Hot off the Press & ready to get drawn on with my magical Opaque markers...
