Christmas / New Year’s Etching 2013

This continues my Berlin-themed holiday card series: Eckkneipe with waiting dog – both, to me, are Berlin. Since working on this card, I have become obsessed with old Berlin signage, especially neon script. More of that to come (at some point)!

Christmas / New Year's Card 2012

This year’s etching was inspired by my heroes of the Berlin streets, bike messengers. This ecologically mobile Santa is speeding past the Brandenburg Gate, heading south with a bag full of happiness for the new year.
This is a three-plate etching with parts in drypoint and mezzotinto.
