Nevermind the sketches. Behold! The (finished) tentacurl.

This is an edition of five, and I use the term "edition" loosely. This was created using a polyester lithograph plate and the plate was determined to make my thousands of shade lines into a much more sinister, over-inked mess. The first image is one of my initial prints onto newsprint, and although it is essentially perfect, it being on newsprint makes it worthless. the remained look nearly identical to the lithograph plate I have pictured. I'm kind of in love with it. I wasn't impressed when it initially started to fill in my line work, but I just let the process happen and I am more than happy with it now. These are not for sale (sorry!).
