Hello! I finally got a press! It's here, it's in my living room!
Fortunately my parents came up this weekend to help set up the table. So it's fully up and running.
I wanted to test the press, get the feel of pressure and all that stuff. So I did a quick proof.
OMG SO EXCITING! I want to start printing all the things. Also a shout out to my parents for getting me the press and helping set it up.
Also I did a color pattern for my snails.
It's a little too starbursts colors? But it's a start. I tried a light blue as a background to tone down the colors. Kinda works?
I don't know, you get to point where you can't stare at it any longer, where no matter what changes you make it doesn't look right. I might print a poster version and it's always better to look at it in print.
ARTIST OF THE WEEK
She focuses in woodcuts. And her work is bold and beautiful. I'm envious of work like this, It's so vibrant
I like her birds more than her people but the color is amazing and the love the way she does her marks.
