This design is from my travelling sketchbook; it was begun at a particularly slow rubber stamp convention in Minnesota, and later finished at a pic-nic table on the shore of Ottertail Lake while Carol, my wife, was out fishing in a boat with my uncle Bill. They didn't have any luck at all. I'm not sure what inspired the snakes, maybe it was roadkill.

This is a fine art rubber stamp designed and made by Steven Vander Meer in Humboldt County, California. The die is deeply etched natural red vulcanized rubber, which is hand trimmed and adhered to red sponge cushion (the good kind, not the self-adhesive kind). The cushion is also trimmed by hand and then mounted to a smoothly sanded and oiled Maple block, with a clear black index printed on the top. The MEER IMAGE name is hot iron branded onto the end-grain of the block, and the SVM personal signature chop is added to the top of the block in red ink (space permitting).

Mount Type:Maple hardwood block indexed in black and finished with linseed oil. Block Width:3.25 inches Block Length:4 inches Block Thickness:3/4 inch Image Size:Approximately 1/4 inch less than block size
