Hello everybody! I just wanted to share a few images from the woodcut printmaking workshop I lead last week at the Fresno Art Museum. It was only a day long workshop and most of the group was totally new to printmaking, but almost everyone managed to complete two pieces. I was very impressed!
Hey everybody! I just wanted to share this short piece from Valley PBS on Fresno Art Hop. It features several local artists including me and fellow printmaker Zachery Bland. They kept asking us about the gallery and Art Hop in general…but all we wanted to do was talk printing. I’m glad we made it into the final edit anyway.
This was filmed at a gallery called Corridor 2122. Zach and I were there representing Print and Glory, doing a live t-shirt printing. Print and Glory is the Fresno State printmaking club made up of students (like Zach), instructors, and community members like myself. Print and Glory does live printing events around the Valley in order to raise money for the printmaking club, pay for visiting artists, and host free workshops for students and the public. These live printings are also a way for us to engage with the community, and familiarize and educate people about what printmaking is and why it is awesome.
Hey everybody. I’ve been working on a few entries for this printmaking contest that’s being co-sponsored by Blick art supplies and Clear Carve Linoleum which is, as their name suggests, a company that makes clear linoleum. The contest rules require that entrants create a print using Clear Carve Linoleum, and the winner gets a Blick Model II etching press! How awesome is that? If you are interested in entering the contest yourself, you can find more info here. Good luck and happy carving, you guys!
Howdy everybody! I recently printed an edition verie of woodcuts called “Radiant Skull.” In an edition verie, as opposed to a regular edition in which all of the prints are more or less identical, a few individual prints in the edition might be printed on different papers or in differnt colors of ink. In the case of this particular edition verie, every print in the edition of 38 is unique. I hope you enjoy this little animation I made of the prints!
Hey everybody! I recently designed and printed some wedding invitations for a friend of mine. Then just the other day, I got one of those invitations back in the mail. It was a little surreal…
