Hercules Ex Libris Stamp


Here's a new Ex Libris stamp I made for a lawyer and his book collection. 

The design is based on the Hercules statue created by William Brodie around 1863. 

I've been challenging myself with sketching and carving intricate Ex Libris designs. Since I haven't had large chunks of time to work on prints, I've been having a lot of fun making these. 

Below are some pictures of how the sketch turned into a stamp. I'm very lucky to have a customer who likes my work and trusts me artistically, which always make the process even better.
