Coast of California

Point Reyes from Double Point
Killion's Coast series is an ongoing work, currently concentrating on Big Sur and the Marin County and Mendocino coasts. Many earlier images appear in the various editions of Tom's book, "The Coast of California". This web page displays coastal scenes from Mendocino in the north, moving south to Point Reyes, San Francisco Bay, the San Mateo coast, Point Lobos and Southern California. More coastal scenes may be found on the following three pages: "Mt. Tamalpais", "Santa Cruz" and "Big Sur". All prints are limited editions, signed and numbered.

Printing History: Multi-block reduction cut with 7 color layers completed summer 2011.Edition of 175 plus 13 a.p.s. Available from numbers in 90s & 100s.

Based on a 1979 sketch done from the rocky knoll behind St. Mary's Church when my father, Leo Killion, was still alive. Leo always loved this tiny West Marin hamlet with its baseball diamond in the town square; but he feared it would be gobbled up by suburban development. He asked me to "preserve" it in a picture, and, 32 years later, I made this print for the Marin Agricultural Land Trust (MALT.org) art show, which helps make Nicasio's survival possible.

Key to Abbreviations:
All prints are signed and numbered in pencil; dimensions are of the actual image itself, not including signature or paper margins, given in inches, height before width.
a.p. = artist's proofs (where color experiments are made before edition is pulled)
b.p. = book proofs (pages from handprinted books that were never bound in and are now sold separately as signed prints)
o.p. = out-of-print
w.p. = working proofs (have serious flaws or odd color variations)


Key to Printing History Terms:
1. "Multi-block reduction (cut) prints" are limited to one edition as blocks are destroyed in the printing process (see Technique page).
2. Editions: Second editions (II) of other multi-color prints involve recutting of color blocks and consequent variations in the final image. Some of the single color prints have been issued in multiple small editions with touch-up recutting ("cleaning-up") of blocks, but no significant changes in the printed image. With the exception of "Wave", "Seaweed" and "Mt. Tam from Wolfe Grade", no more than 350 prints (total of all editions and a.p.s) have been issued of any print.
3. "Giclées": Killion's digital reproductions are created with new generation "iris print" technology that enables the images to be printed on all-rag watercolor paper. All Killion's "giclée" prints are larger-size than the original woodcuts and have only been created after the woodcut editions have sold out (see information in How to Purchase Prints). All other Killion prints are handprinted by the artist from his original hand cut blocks.
