Year of the Snake (2013, solid-color blockprint, printed by letterpress in an edition of 500). David Lance Goines was born in 1945 in Grants Pass, Ore., and has lived and worked in Berkeley as a printer and graphic designer since 1965. He has designed and printed 232 posters for local, national, and international businesses, as well as graphic work for many private clients.
