Cold Studio One More print

This is the latest print in the series. Eduardo came over last night to help me print. After we got our images ready for our new screens. For the silkscreen party this Sunday at Brewery Ink.

It was/is real cold in the studio. The ink was so thick...Sounds like the start of a joke, but it isn't. The ink was really thick. But I stirred it a long time. And it was smooth printing. The piece is the title page for the Hex Opera series.

And More Prints

I had to reprint this image. Wasn't satisfied the first time round. This image is called Vague Ultimate Bedroom. The other print-the image that's in the masthead- is called Drunk In My Past. Printed that the other night. This is the type of fascinating commentary you can come to expect from this blog. Posting at the very end of the day. Well, just before the dishes. Printed a few of these smaller (12" x 18") print collages, as well. I'm excited about the next batch of screens.

Just recently printed the Jager Bombs poster. It's from a painting of mine from a couple years ago. The paper size is 26" x 26". Small edition, around 25. My friend Eduardo Benedetto came over and helped me print. It required another pair of (clean) hands.
And speaking of clean hands. Dishwashing liquid is a nice way to get the first few layers of ink off your hands. Goodnight.

New Prints

These are the third and fourth of the new silkscreen series I'm printing.
I printed the raven/skull piece (A Caw A Caw) on Halloween early am.
It was appropriately spooky in the studio.

The Big Lino

I'm working on a real big linocut.
About 5' x 7'.
It's going to take awhile.
It's further along than this.
There's been actual cutting.
But not so you'd notice.
I'm going to print it on rice paper.
There will be lights and sound when it is installed.

I don't know where yet.

Black & White

While I'm working on the big linocut, I'm screening a new series of prints. These are the first two I've printed. These prints are mostly based on earlier collaged/layered/prints.
It's a fairly dark series, and I wanted the immediacy of black and white. And I've been thinking about xerox machines. And the quest for perfect toner.
