I have been enjoying myself with this new medium that I am currently exploring, and I am discovering how versatile printmaking can really be. Don’t get me wrong, painting is still my first love, but I really enjoy the detour I have taken these past few months. I feel like I am striking a good balance between everything in my life right now, and I have taken time to really enjoy myself.
This is a continuation of a series I began this summer, and I have a couple more images to round it out….
I am in the middle of taping some demos on letterpress printing for a new course that I will be teaching soon, and by deconstructing what I do for the camera, I have learned a lot more about my process. I hope to post something on this in the next couple of months. I feel it will better explain how I go about this process.
I also hope to post soon an image (linocut) that I am working on that measures 24” wide by 26” long. It is taking a while to plan out and carve (even in linoleum…), but it will be worth the time because with this piece I will be testing a large Vandercook press’s limits. This is the same Vandercook that I repaired over the summer, and will be factoring into my upcoming course.
Something random- I read of this great bicycle maker in Portland, and here is a link
to view some amazing rides.
