Peg Nocciolino, colleague from Hartford, amazing illustrator and all round go to gal, when seeing my foray into the pen with the sheep prompted me to look at the work of Jacques Hnizdovsky. Wow. Love this stuff. The site I posted has a wonderful collection of his works from lino cuts, woodcuts and prints to paintings and drawings. This black and white work is very much in a hand I would like to develop. Perhaps Mr. Hnizdovsky and the late Leonard Baskin, along with Evelyn Ness can spur me on. This is all a sidebar to the portraits I want to launch into. Its great to have quite a few things to prompt thinking and research.
