good print and misprint.

printmaking is all about lining up the registers, and so is being a female. i laughed at combining the two, i dont mean to be vulgar, its just funny to me at this point.

king of pentacles

what a vain man, i actually cried making this, visually adding the moose's last breath didnt make me feel any better...but it was necessary for this particular card.

now i know this is Logan's thing, im sorry Logan-i had to try my hand at it, i wont steal your thunder... but it seems everyone is doing pin-ups lately, and the artists are all men. now its time for a woman to do a pin-up. So here is my new project in the works. sketch to ball-point to color and hopefully to a finish at some point.

the newest edition from printmaking!

this is non-toxic litho, or polyester paper litho print. i drew this in sharpie and ball-point on polyester paper. i wet the paper using a sponge, ink it with normal litho/etching ink, and run it through the press....voila!

"the painted veil"

ahhh...what a wonderful book. Just what I needed right now. The painted veil is written by the talented W. Somerset Maugham, published in 1925, part of the lost generation's need to find the meaning of life and escaping their ego from the western perspective. I love each of his characters, I had to bring them to life in my vision. So from my sketchbook to you, here they are.

cutting board blues, I am just another surface to be used

This project I started while I was still in school, and two cutting boards seemed lonely, so I created one more for the series.
printmaking class starts tonight! yes. yes. yes.

the Clinton "olde home day" juried art show

While I didnt walk away with a prize or title from this juried show, I was still so happy to have my art in one of my favorite museums, the Museum of Russian Icons. It has always been a vital source of inspiration, I can already feel the surge of creativity. (the picture with the woman falling to hell isnt mine, I just really liked this icon, fyi)
