I made this hand-stitched reduction linocut on chipboard for the 2013 OCAC Print Portfolio. I really love participating in exchanges; it’s so wonderful to share work.
(This week I’m working on photographing all the things I made last semester and posting them to the website.)
This was my contribution to the winter 2013 Postcard Collective exchange.
In case you were wondering.
I’m so excited about the Postcard Collective winter exchange. So much good work. Thank you, faraway friends! I’m so pleased to participate! I really loved the postcards by Chris Toalson (it HAS been difficult), James Luckett, Sunday Ballew, and Amelia Morris.
Today I had a grad school interview on Skype. I think it went well, but it was also strange because the conventional interview tips don’t really apply in the same way. There’s no opportunity for a firm handshake or eye contact. Also I initially was wearing furry house slippers, but I felt compelled to put on real shoes because it was an interview, an important interview, and one should not wear furry house slippers to an interview. But of course he never saw my feet. I guess theoretically I could have gone without pants.
Technology is making life more convenient and more strange. (I did wear pants in the aforementioned interview.)
Things are really in flux at the moment in a sweet volatile blend of excitement and anxiety. I’m thankful for the grounding elements of my jobs and wonderful friends and yoga practice and art practice.
*Recapitulation as in a sonata, just to be clear.
I received my first two postcards today as part of the Fall 2012 Postcard Collective exchange. This is exciting; there are twenty-seven more to look forward to.
I put up scans of two recent exchange prints on the website. Go see.
My bags are packed (mostly), ready (almost) to head east. Tomorrow!
New intaglio plate, for a print exchange! I haven’t decided if I am going to incorporate color with a second plate or with chine colle, but I DO know that this print will be double-sided.
