In September of 2004 I picked some hop vines from our garden at home to bring into the studio for this drawing. There was a crysalis on one of the leaves. The very next day there was a comma angelwing butterfly flying around my studio. So of course I had to put both of these elements into Tripel. The name refers to my favorite style of Belgian beer. This is a fun design to color in with Prismacolor pencils or watercolors.

This is a fine art rubber stamp designed and made by Steven Vander Meer in Humboldt County, California. The die is deeply etched natural red vulcanized rubber, which is hand trimmed and adhered to red sponge cushion (the good kind, not the self-adhesive kind). The cushion is also trimmed by hand and then mounted to a smoothly sanded and oiled Maple block, with a clear black index printed on the top. The MEER IMAGE name is hot iron branded onto the end-grain of the block, and the SVM personal signature chop is added to the top of the block in red ink (space permitting).
