Chasing Elvis


Art: Chasing Elvis by Artist Robin Cruz McGee
This is my entry into the Elvis Challenge. It's an ACEO, done on copper. I remember exactly where I was when I heard the news of the death of the King. I was in my mustang in Charleston, SC, about to head onto I 26. The news came as a shock. I was a big Elvis fan at the time. I still like his music.

Chasing is a process of inscribing lines in the surface of metal using chisels and punches. It is similar to engraving but does not remove any material. The line width and depth is controlled by the power of the strike and the angle of the tool.
