I am off to Vienna tomorrow! Of course there are suppose to be thunderstorms tomorrow afternoon, so that will just add stress to myself. And hopefully there won't be any delays! AH. I am already stressing about it.
I have some news, a curator, from New Zealand, contacted me thru etsy and asked if she could use my photo for a submission post!
Of course I said yes! Here is a screen shot of the post.
She also wanted to purchase a print, which is wonderful! This was my first time shipping internationally! I just hope it is able to make it all the way to New Zealand without it being bent or damaged! Cross your fingers, everyone! They need to invent not bendable cardboard that doesn't weigh a ton.
Here is the website:
It looks so cute, I wish I could go. Maybe if I ever get to New Zealand.
I also finished my relief print. And it turned out completely different from what I thought.
There is a photo of it on my instagram, not the greatest photo, but I am short on time. I think the reason why I had so much trouble with the final layer was because of my second. layer, it was a flat blue, which I don't think was a good idea, it should've been a lighter color or I should have made more cuts into the second layer. With the third layer, I tried to do a rainbow roll, but the animals were not showing up the way I wanted. I accidentally printed backwards on a print and my professor said that worked, that you could see the animals better. So that's what I did! I was completely fine with the idea because I knew the third layer would never register correctly, so I might as well go in the opposite direction.
I will eventually have to tear the borders and make it a bleed. Over all I am happy with it. Definitely for it being my first layered print and working with a material that wasn't meant to be layered, the rubber stretched, not a good combo.
