Monotype: From The Santa Fe Session

I've gotten around to photographing some of the prints I made in the Santa Fe workshop; this one is called "Big Red Striped Shrimp". This is a monotype created with Akua inks using two PETG plates and it was run through a Laguna etching press. I don't think Laguna presses are made anymore though. Bummer! They are nice presses. 
"Big Red Striped Shrimp", Monotype;
image size 12'x16", printed on Arches 88

At first I though this print might be a bit on the chaotic side but it's really starting to grow on me. It's a little bit whimsical but it has some nice color and value contrast.
Let me know what you think!
