a shitty printmaking post
all of these have something wrong with them but i don’t care im done with my printmaking final so now i can work on other finals
funny story: for half a semester, my printmaking instructor jokingly said he’ll make everyone in our class do a copy of one of rembrandt’s etchings. well apparently some asshole in our class made him mad, so now everyone has to actually do a copy
luckily he’s letting us replace rembrandt’s head with someone else’s so i chose that horse mask. you know the one
my solar plate design for a print edition of 35
the theme was memento mori so i used russian criminal tattoos as my theme heh
i totally jacked a lot of phrases and symbolism from here
the invert is what ill be using for a relief print, i’ll probably post the actual plate and stuff later for a clearer understanding!
here are some photos from the gallery show!
thank you to everyone who came, it was really great
and I’m sorry if we didn’t get to meet, I was doing interviews and I
may or may not have been drunk at the time was drunk
now that it’s over, time to update art on a semi regular basis
Our art gallery is all set up and we even got a page in the OC Weekly magazine andandand.
sorry one more from my friend hannah (with an actual photo of me in it)!
also everyone who said that they could possibly come to the show: oh man it is a great honor and i’m really really thankful and happy!
I’M SORRY FOR NOT POSTING ANY ART BUT:

THE PRESSURE’S ON our prints aren’t even framed WE USED CLIPS TO PUT THEM ON THE WALL FUCK i’m nervous as hell man GOD JESUS CHRIST

Hey any of you guys near the santa fe (south california) region: i’m gonna have a show at the hibbleton with a few peeps this friday! If you guys want to meet up and hang out then you should come!
Most of the things that ill be showcasing are probably things youve already seen on this blog, but nothing beats seeing the real thing WINK
last 2 prints done ( / u \)
i didn’t even notice that scout mom is facing the same way and i didn’t even draw her with the same face HA
all are zinc plate etchings/monoprints, the restaurant print was badly butchered with watercolors, india ink, and water soluble speedball ink
but i’m finally done with everything for my printmaking midterm so i can goof off and work on commissions now
midterms are coming up and i’ve been working on my prints like a mad man
here’s some etchings (and a colorgraph) for my printmaking midterm
just 2 more to go!
