A whole bunch of amazing ladies have stepped into my life recently and taken me under their collective wing, and for this I am thankful.
It’s a weird one because I made half of the pages before traveling, and half after. I think this is pretty apparent; I was headed down one path before I left and I came back on another.
In other news, tomorrow I start a new job.
I’m weaving scraps of kitakata and then sewing them together on the sewing machine. On Saturday I will print an etching on them.
For now, though, they are clipped to the curtains. Can’t wait to get printing. I have the pieces of several projects prepared; now I just have to put them together.
Happy (almost) Friday! It’s going to be a printmaking weekend.
Just kidding, I’m experimenting with paper sculpture in the apartment. And the photo is purposefully dark to add mystery.
I made a new hexaflexagon yesterday. What is going on here? you ask. The supergreat Nick Bunch gave me his unwanted proofs from litho, which I tore down and made into a hexaflexagon, which I then printed intaglio over. Yikes!
I wish you could see this in person.
Also, tomorrow I am going to Minneapolis to attend the Mid-America Print Council Conference. I am so full of excitement to geek out about printmaking for four days. So… I’ll have cool things to post next week!
