Linocut from Linoleum Cutting Demo

Here's another low quality photo (because I keep forgetting my camera) of another linocut I used for my Beginning Printmaking Class. This linocut of tree bark was drawn out with a lot more detail than the last just to give the students another example. This one I used to demonstrate different cutting techniques during class (and then demonstrated printing the other linocut from Monday's post).

There's a lot left to be cut out on this one before I would print it... but it's a start.

First Relief Demo

Here are some terrible photos (because I forgot my camera) of the linocut I cut out ahead and then printed during my relief printing demo for my Beginning Printmaking class.

Prep Prep Prep

Yup, school starts tomorrow and I'm knee-deep in final preparations for the first day of Beginning, Intermediate & Advanced Printmaking classes at UW Parkside. Nothing to report besides constantly triple-checking and tweaking my syllabi and other materials.

Return to Blogging...

This summer has flown by, and unfortunately in that time I've been letting my blog collect dust and posting only a few sporadic times. I haven't been do making much new art... I've been busy with doing one show at Artworks' allery, slowly getting back print exchanges, and mostly preparing to teach at UW Parkside. Classes start in just a few days, so I'm sure I'll be posting about my demos and hopefully some new work that they've inspired.

In the meantime, here I am with the other participants online at PrintZero's print exchange website (toward the bottom of the page).
