It seems that every time I go into the studio to create the gelli plate beckons me.  I have it safely stored in its plastic clamshell case but there is just something about using it that thrills me every time I open that package.  I’ve created hundreds of prints over the last 5 weeks; each one getting me nearer and nearer Gelli Plate heaven. 

This particular ‘pull’ I did was to clean off my plate.  But golly gee willikers the first thing I saw was a marching giraffe a la Carla Sonheim.  Since she’s one of my very favorite illustrators/teacher/friend I had to post it for her to see the obvious.  This is one piece that won’t be getting a second printing.
