As a sidebar in 2008 when I started to design for Henry Wessells, I warmed to the task of making further etchings about the strangeness of guns and fighting. Here is “Sighting” from 2008. Plate size is 185 x 195 mm. It is in an edition of 9. See below.

This is the sole artist’s proof of a work for Henry Wessells’s publication of Joe Haldeman’s Forever Peace. To Stop War. I wish I had kept it but I discarded this plate because I was unhappy with the aquatint. It’s image size is 150 x 98 mm and it was made in 2007. See below.
