This dual edition gig poster is the first of many collaborations by a new collective I’m in called Everyone Is Awesome Forever. These posters need to get sold, and there will be a web store and more photos up soon! Spread the word! Also, listen to The Oh Hellos, they’re my friends and also wonderful musicians.
So many linkz.
I never thought I’d have changed this much and come as far as I have with printmaking this semester. I feel that it’s important that those of you following my work understand that the process I’m using is something I taught myself over the course of this semester.
That being a screen printed aquatint intaglio technique, I began simple and was allowed to explore the limits of my plates, learn how to wipe correctly, and how I could learn to handle ferric chloride as a tool for making images.
I successfully stayed within the limits of the first two plates, and also made a baby step forward with a different set, the triptych. I’m still going to attempt to knock out one more print before this semester is over, but I’m pretty content with my pace so far.
I hope I haven’t been too redundant in my exploration and practice. Long days and pleasant nights, and I hope we’re well met.
Every artist is different. Edit: every artist tries to be different. With the exception of those dudes on Deviant art drawing cartoon characters and pictures of their “girlfriends” those dudes are …
Here’s that interview I’ve been talking about. Take a look if you’d like.
This is an artist’s proof (AP) from my first copper plate etching, titled Saharan Savior.
It’s about to make a reappearance in my upcoming interview. Before it does I wanted to not only reminisce a little, but also remind myself I can never print this image again. I’ve altered the plate since then and cannot return. Essentially, making this tiny edition quite unique.
That’s a weird feeling, but I’ve also come a long way since this, and I’m quite proud of my progress.

Printeresting reblogged me, this means a butt ton. Thanks guys!
I’ve said this before, but I have nothing but thanks to give Annie Werner of tumblropenarts. Without her support, I would not be on the artist spotlight nor would my work have been disseminated as widely without them posting my imagery. These are the prints of mine they have posted over the past few months of me submitting to them, and as you can tell my work has changed quite a bit.
