Tonight I printed the first layer of several small prints tonight with those 34 varied ribbon blocks. Unfortunately I forgot to take photos until they were all buried in the drying rack. My head's a bit foggy due to a cold, so I couldn't tell you how many I printed or much about them. I'll make better artistic judgments and write better descriptions once I'm feeling better in a later post.

They're done! I finished my set of 34 ribbon-shaped blocks tonight. I will begin printing them as soon as I can commandeer the large press in the print room for a few hours.
Also, I should note that even my wood shavings have taken on a spiraling ribbon look!

I know I've been posting about those ribbon blocks for a while now, but I've got 29 cut out so far & probably 5 more left so I'm finally nearing printing time! The last few blocks shown here are also the largest, so I'm quite excited to cut them out (and only slightly nervous about the fun challenges that'll come up in the printing process).

MEGA (Michigan Emerging Graduate Artists) exhibit's opening reception was tonight at Kendall's Gallery 114. The show was put together by Kendall's MFA club - with special thanks to great people like Taylor Greenfield & Alison Hurley! The exhibit was juried by Cara Brewer Thompson. One of my woodcuts from my series of November prints was accepted into the exhibit.

Saturday night was Dinderbeck Studio's First Annual Picnic exhibition. (No, there was no food. That was just the name.) I showed a print, but of course I forgot to take a photo so this post is a bit lacking today. (I'll try to add a photo to this post later.)

Yes, it IS technically spring break time at school, but I'm not going to allow myself much of a break - I'm already back at school & prepping paper to print an edition! I realize this is the last time as a student that I'll have spring break, but I'm too much of a busy body to take an actual break.
