Day of the Dead Post Card Competition

This was my submission to the Day of the Dead Post Card Competition held by the Minnesota Center for Book Arts.

I wanted experiment with some new techniques on this. After Mr. Bury gave such a raving review of paper clay I decided to try it out. I built up his face with the clay, sanded it and then painted it with acrylic paint. The background is painted with india ink and the speech bubble is a black paper cut out.

I haven't had a chance to see the show yet but in this picture from the Mill City Times you can see my piece! If you follow that link you can also see more submissions from this show.

Fourth Annual Mini Works Show! APPITITE

I am excited to announce that I am included in this years Mini Works Show at the Unison Gallery at Water Street Market in New York !

September 13 – October 10, 2011

Unison Gallery at Water Street Market proudly announces its Fourth Annual Mini Works Show. Curated by Eileen Hedley and April Warren, the theme of this year's exhibition is APPETITE. Appetite can be interpreted in a variety of ways, including a natural desire to satisfy a bodily need or a stong desire or liking for something. Artists are challenged to create works in a 5" x 5" format that reflects upon or reinterprets this theme. Our objective is to fill the smallest gallery space in New Paltz: it's a clown-car of an art show. Link

Polaroid Camer Lino Cut

Remember my Polaroid drawing I did earlier this year? Well I decided to create a linocut based on that image.
 First I transfered my drawing onto a Master Carve block with tracing paper.
Then I carved out the design. Our new Kitten Oliver likes to sit on my desk and "help" me work.
 The final product!
 Some of the proofs and prints I pulled.
 These cards are now available on my Etsy Shop!
