hot rod posters

i decided that i wanted the newest series of linocuts to be reminiscent of drag racing posters in the northeast in the 50s and 60s. i wanted them to be graphically strong, and i wanted them to include text. i also wanted the text to be done in the pronto plate lithography method as an experiment of its effectiveness.
this is the first completed proof in what will be an edition of 20 with 5 artist proofs. the 5 proofs already have homes, so you can forget about that (haha). the edition should be ready for sale and shipping in a week.
i love it when a plan comes together.
i know the images i will use for the next one, but i am struggling with colors. i am thinking red and yellow with black text, but i'm not sure. maybe the subject will tell me...
