APRIL BERUBE-BUG / THE PROCESS

I decided to do a 2-color print for this months Berube-Bug, and I'm not sure what the reasoning was behind adding all of the baby bugs to the "Mommy", but all of the coverage and oversaturation of "OctoMom" may have seeped into my subconciousness as I was drwaing this.

Below is documentation of the process of what it entails to create a 2-color linocut print.
