Hi all, this is from a series of monotypes I have been doing. They are done on a plexi glass plate in a completely subtactive manner (ink is wiped away only, none is added back on) It depicts a portrait of a man from the back.

Hi there,
I just thought I'd let you know I enjoyed your print. I like the mysterious quality.
It's an interesting point of view, looking over the back of this persons head. I found myself trying to find clues as to he was. I'd like to see more of them, since it's a series. I hope you'll post them.

Very impressive. I like the way the background goes fuzzy with the focus on the back of his head. You did a great job on the hair. If you are doing a series of these please post them as you get them done.
