The beginings of the card selection…

So I decided to start printing cards as a way to bring in some elements to my work that are quite affordable. I actually really like the cards I’ve made so far and I hope you enjoy them too. I’ll be selling them at Hyde Park Open Studios this Sunday at EES. Below are a few selections from the group I’ve made. The cards are simple, cute and whimsical and sometimes even a bit cheesy, but who doesn’t love cheesy? I want to apologize for how yellow the images are the lighting was horrible and I was too excited to worry about it. Enjoy.

The print exchange with AS220

So this summer I signed up to be part of a print exchange with AS220 as a way to give myself a deadline. Luckily it worked and although the exchange has officially happened I still feel like I want to work with some of the blocks I have carved. I did a few variations just because I would have it no other way, but I feel there is a lot more that could be done with this. Bellow are the prints that I came out with so far . The red and blue one is the print I did for the exchange, now I love red/orange color but the blue is to be discussed. Once again my struggle with color has become such a focus on this piece and still erks me. I hope you enjoy and suggestions and feedback are always welcome.

These are all 24 printed and tiled out because I wanted to take this picture. Oddly enough my feet are my favorite part of this picture. Oh well!

The renewed woodblock

This is not finished but today I pulled a woodblock for the first time in almost a year and well I was actually happy with it! Sadly enough I did not pull many first states so I will be doing a lot of varied images with this block as a key component.
