I finally completed the right side of my current print
this past weekend. But now I’m stalled on 
the left side. 
My original plan was to print the text as
you see it here in this transparent overlay, and the finished
print would be folded and creased in the middle
to resemble a page from a book.

 Since I’ve only print seven (and one is already ruined from
a random ink splash), I don’t have much room to play
with the text block. I had considered using colored ink,
and even printing it directly across the face.
I’ll need to ponder my choices for a few more days
before I decide….. 

“Plead Guilty” was taken from the handwriting on
the back of his mugshot. Interestingly, he was arrested
in my hometown of Toledo!

    There's something so satisfying in your "forging" the handwriting from Arthur's forgery documentation. The portrait is haunting as usual.

    Annie, I actually hadn't thought of it from that perspective! Now I'm guilty of forgery as well……
