Monoserigraph of Filiz

Continuing my portrait project is a monoserigraph of Filiz.

At the open studios event a month back a few people asked to learn this method, so I organized a demo. I charged a very small fee so I could cover the cost of materials and afford to buy a beer afterwards. It ended up going pretty well, and was the third time I've demo-ed this technique and the first time I did not stutter from nerves. Ideally, I'd like to try to workshop it as it doesn't require much in the way of facilities and doesn't use anything toxic or dangerous, making it ideal to teach nonprintmakers. Above is the print I made to demo the technique, and below is one of the two made by the attendees (the other is going to China!)

I've recently run into the strange problem of my monoserigraphs being too precise, and people assuming they are manipulated photographs. Or maybe people just don't believe that anyone can draw anymore.
