what i've been up to

I had mentioned last year that I was starting a Printmaking class...well, it was pretty interesting to learn about the various techniques used in centuries past to create what we so easily create now with digital media. A true eye-opening experience. Here is a sneak peek into my creations while I finalize the photography of the actual pieces:


Lithography - this was my favorite process. I started out using simple, one-dimensional designs just to try out the technique, but WOW did I learn that you can go in so many directions. Igor Koutsenko is one of my new favorite artists which I discovered through the class and he has some fabulous work you can check out here. I'm anxious to try out a few new designs of my own; I'll keep you posted.


Etching - Now this was a long and laborious process, probably my least favorite of all, but it was surely a learning experience in self-discipline.


Collagraphy - This was another of my favorite techniques as well. A fun and mind-boggling process, it's fun to put the pieces together and see something arise on to the thick paper straight off the press.
