Lino block print (framed).


Limited edition 1 of 30.

This is a linoleum block print, in a rich, dark, coffee-brown on beige (like creamy coffee) coloured Japanese kozo paper, 8" by 10" paper (20.3 cm by 25.4 cm). The frame itself is 9.5" by 12". The print is my illustration of a coffee mug and how the aroma triggers me to remember how much I depend on coffee. The molecule is caffeine, a bitter, white crystalline xanthine alkaloid and psychoactive stimulant, which keeps us coming back for more coffee. The molecule contains carbon, hydrogen, nitrogen and oxygen atoms, each of which are shown somewhat differently. Now, in fairness, I don't think caffeine is what we smell, but when I smell coffee, I know I'm going to get my caffeine fix.
