The Commodore - Woodblock Prints

2 colour woodblock prints: Commodore Pt. 1, and Commodore Pt. 2. 15x15 inches. Limited Edition of 10.
Symbolizing post-war freedom. They tell the story of a lone traveller riding a Brough Superior motorcycle through the lower mainland, absorbing the sights and sounds of a newly-discovered life. The sign is a bit of an enigma to me, only appearing in the background of 2 old photographs I could find of the Orpheum from 1946. The printmaking process is the hero, culminating in countless hours of carving and late nights of expert instruction on the press. 
Created at Malaspina Print Makers under the mentorship of Lee McKay
