Moose face 2
There is no doubt making a print a day is demanding and yesterday was the first day I was not happy with print, a moose, so I took time to rework him today and to carve a second moose for print #8. I was interested in the moose’s face, go I Googled, “moose face” to find images to work from. What I found was the Urban Dictionary definition for “moose face.”
“A word (usually an insult) used to describe somebody as being silly/a fool, etc. It can also be used as more of a loving/joking insult, meant for close friends, if you are that way inclined. For example: You forgot to buy me a doughnut?! You’re such a mooseface!”
It is entertaining insult, though I can’t quite imagine anyone over the age of 10 calling someone a mooseface.
I really like the face of a moose, the overside, kind of dopey look. I have never seen one during my hikes, there are apparently about 50,000 in the Northeast. With some luck on my next hike in the Adirondacks of northern NY or higher up in Maine if I print this moose onto my shirt I will conjure one up.

Today you get moose, print #7 and print #8. Both are happy moose!
As always they are available for $20 on my Etsy store,
they are 4″ x 6″ images on 8″ x 10″ paper and only 10 are available.

And finally here are two photos, one of me inking the plates and the other printing on my Charles Brand Etching Press.
