Lobdell played an integral role in the development of Abstract Expressionism in the San Francisco Bay Area during the 1940s and 1950s. In 1966 he spent ten weeks at Tamarind Lithography Workshop, at that time based in Los Angeles, where he produced a portfolio of thirty-two prints. Lobdell approached the lithographic process experimentally and embraced such unorthodox techniques as pulling impressions of partial and reversed images and using transfer paper to mechanically copy drawings from paper to lithographic stone.
