I have two states finished since this WIP photo was taken in mid-November. Should be able to edition “Kathleen” next week. 10” x 8”, etching with aquatint.
A quick demo by one of my students (Alisun D.) showing a simple way to do a reduction linocut using a cardboard jig and hole punch registration. Just one of the different methods I teach for both multiple color and reduction linocut at all levels in my Tuesday morning relief printmaking class. The new session starts next week on Tuesday the 10th, 2018 and the registration page at DFAC is here: PR502: Relief Printmaking.
It's crunch time, packing, pricing and organizing my work in order to drive up to Asheville, NC on Wednesday in time for the Conference! But the weather looks good for the drive there and back and I'm so looking forward to seeing my like-minded Arts & Crafts friends and colleagues there again. It's a total immersion art history experience, along with some of the finest artists and craftspersons working today.
Glad you're here! I've finally moved over from WordPress in order to start a new e-commerce enterprise here. I'll be adding more items as I go along; thanks for your patience as the dust settles here at studioibis dot com.
Summer has been slow due to wrist tendonitis raising its ugly head, so I've been concentrating on drawing, etching and teaching while postponing a lot of linoleum and woodcut block carving. Meanwhile, I'm excited to have been accepted to show a second time at the annual National Arts & Crafts Conference at the historic Grove Park Inn in Asheville, NC in February, 2018. Details may be found here.
