Back at the turn of the 21st Century, I got my drawing fix through rubber stamps. For the most part, my cards followed the card trends at the time. Around 2008, I wanted to expand my stamping to something more arty and I wanted to use images more my own.

I went through my art history books and found some African masks.  I melded a couple of them into this design, which I carved from Staedtler carving blocks.  The other stamps are a Japanese poem and cave art, although I can’t remember the companies to credit them.
