making first print for dream book

Well, I started working on my first plate. I am going to do a lot of these prints with a photopolymer printing method. So I have worked on creating my first prints.
Well my first two plates, they didn’t work out as well as I expected because I forgot to inverse out the image as is done with photopolymer printing and my plates are the opposite of what I thought they would be. Oh well it was just a test to see if I remember how and I guess I didn’t.

cover for dream book

Well I started on my thesis project because well that is kinda important for my last year at school 😛 yeah I know. and well the show is in April so I better get started….
So my thesis is on Hybrid Art which is just the mixing of traditional  methods and process with new technology. My work primarily deals with working in the adobe suits and traditional printmaking methods.
I started working on my book cover for my choose your own dream book and so wanted to wrap the cover of the book with some copper plate prints that I etched. So I made 2 different copper plate etches one that had a circular pattern and one that had a more rectangle pattern. I have printed these on Japanese paper, and I am going to wrap the cover of my book with the prints. The cover of the book will be more like a box because my book will be a book that binds on 4 sides, and you can have a choice to turn 1 of 4 different pages. So we will see how it goes.

Junk I can’t throwaway “stickers”

Well, my next zine in this section is stickers, I have collected and scanned all my stickers, and even got some more to create this zine……I know…

These are some sample pages from the zine. There was about 26 pages.

Hatch show workshop

I got to participate in a letterpress printing workshop and here are some of the posters that I did. It was a great experiences and I learned a lot.

This are old-fashion wood type letters and words for the most part and we inked them up and printed them on poster sheets and on t-shirts.
