AKA: I TOLD You to Quit Smoking

Hand pulled by the artist from the original blocks on an Ettan etching press at Sitka, Alaska, January, 1993.

Note: some prints do not feature the border; also pictured is the original woodblock (courtesy of the Alaska State Museum). Featured in the book Raven Town AKA Sitka.

This wood engraving was inspired by a verse which appeared in Sitka’s weekly newspaper, The Alaskan, on March 16, 1895. “The O.M.” was Edward Chamberlain who now and then wrote a column titled “Curio” in the paper and signed it “The Old Man.”

As this is by way of being a public service message (if somewhat blunt) it is an open edition to be printed on demand.
