Anyhow, the theme of this show is seasonal, Halloween, and they specifically requested that we price our items low. At the printshop where I work, we recently printed an edition of intaglio prints for the artist Aron Wiesenfeld and had stacks of narrow strips of Arches paper. So, inbetween being a helpful instructor during my monoprint class, I made little tiny skull monoprints. I started with reductive style monoprint inking: I inked the plate with a solid layer of black, and created the image by selectively removing ink. After printing the first skulls, I reworked the "ghost," the residue of ink left on the plate.
Friday, October 26th at Pop Gallery.
I made these two little prints on the same day as part of the demo. The witch is by request from one of the students.
