Linocuts for artist's books

Work in Progress - Linocut block by Suzanne Coley
(drawn January 2011, carved May 2014)
I am working on some new linocuts for three artist's books about life growing up in New York City in the 80s.
Photo of my former NYC neighborhood,  May 2014
I have been visiting old neighborhoods and seeing if my memory of the architecture and landscapes match.  I am almost done with the first block and wanted to post it.  The poems have already been written -- I just need to find more time to carve . . .
