Fresno Mini Maker Faire 2015

The Second Annual Fresno Mini Maker Faire is on Saturday, and this year I once again had the pleasure of designing, carving, and printing a custom woodblock for the event.  Commissioned by the Fresno Art Museum, the block was printed onto canvas tote bags that will be given as gifts to anyone who signs up for a Museum membership at the Maker Faire.

The block in the middle of carving.

The block when I was about half way through the carving process.

A few proofs on newsprint before fellow Print and Glory printer Christine Rea and I moved on to the bags.

Just look at those beauties chillin' on the drying rack!

Here are a few close-ups of the final product.  If you are in the Fresno area I hope that you will come by, and maybe pick up one of these awesome bags.  LeeAnnDiCicco_fmmf2015_3

Tired of trying to carry around loose produce and priceless family heirlooms with your bare hands? Well there's finally a solution, and it's these tote bags! At last  you'll be able to go out without accidentally dropping Grandpa's Purple Heart or a bunch of raw potatoes wherever you go, AND you'll look great doing it.

I’ll be at the Maker Faire on Saturday along with Print and Glory printing this block (and a bunch of other amazing student designed, hand-carved blocks) onto t-shirts.  Want a preview of the printmakerly goodness!  Try this on for size!

Get it? Try it on for size…’cause it’s a shirt. I’m hilarious.

 

The Fresno Mini Maker Faire will be this Saturday, April 11 from 10am to 6pm at the Fresno Art Museum and Radio Park. I hope you’ll swing by the Print and Glory booth and say “Hi!”
