Bubbles Floatin' Woodcut Print by Cary Cochrane
This is a two-color woodcut I made for my son, Christopher, for his documentary film, "Chasing Bubbles." The film is about a friend of Christopher's, Alex Rust, who quit his job as a trader on the Chicago Board of Trade, taught himself how to sail, bought a boat and sailed around the world in about three years. I never met Alex but he was a huge risk taker. He later died at the age of 28 in India. My image of Alex shows him sailing off into the evening sky on his sailboat, Bubbles, bound for new adventures in a new life. The title of the print, Bubbles Floatin', is taken from a quote from Alex in the movie. Check it out on www.youtube/chasingbubbles.

Handmade by Cary Cochrane in Winnetka, Illinois.
Cochrane’s original prints are printed with archival ink onto acid-free paper; some of which are embellished with hand painting. He doesn’t create numbered editions, instead, each print is altered in some way and labeled as artist’s proofs (A/P).
Cochrane received his BFA in Graphic Design from Carnegie Mellon University in 1970. His bulldog, Gridley is the subject of a number of his creations.
