Print Artist: Jack Pachuta

Strolling an art fair I came upon the prints of Jack Pachuta from Cedarburg, WI. My art teacher friend was inquiring about his printing process. She was very taken by an image of two cranes. Meanwhile I was thumbing through prints off to the side. I found a fun portrait piece! Truly it is my favorite item from the whole art fair.

He told me the print is something he originally created for his personal Christmas cards. I grew to love the art even more. He mentioned that he has made portraits for other seasons as well. Still, I think this one is most special because his lucky friends received it at the end of one year and the anticipation of a new one.

Making cards for the holidays is something I have always wanted to do. However, year after year, it slips my mind when it's down to the time. Will this year be different? I hope. Thanks to Mr. Pachuta for the reminder and the inspiration! This example is a cropped version, see the full version and more artwork at Art Badger.
