Artist's comment: While I was creatijng a plate to become a map of Guemes Island (also known as Two Dog Island in my stories), I got curious about my plates from the '90s, so I pulled out one from the Handmade Dogs series of my hand with 256 points in the arborescent pattern and printed it thusly. It was the first print I made on the Mariner Halfwood Press No. 1, as the title says.
