Philly ->Providence->Bristol

I got home from the Southern Graphics Council Convention/Philagraphica just in time to go to the last performance of The Latest Manton Avenue Project.

Jo Dery asked me to do an artist lecture for her printmaking undergraduates at Roger Williams University in Bristol, RI. I talked a little about the SGC and showed some of my prints. I had a lot of fun diagnosing some reduction print solutions. If I drum up some pictures I will post. I am also working on some demos for the upcoming lasercutting/screenprinting class I am teaching at AS220.

And thankfully my studio hasn't sprung a leak in the deluge that is the local weather.

Dispatch from the Fab Lab.

I thought I would post a few pictures (in reverse) from some quick adventures in the fab lab. I will never look at matte board the same. Thanks to Jenine our host and Jason our friendly guinea pig.

Ink and Lasers Ink Ink and Lasers!

Hey kids are you ready for the best of both worlds?
I am teaching a class with Jenine Bressner. The class is one of the first collaborations between the as220 printshop and fab lab. We are very excited about the endless possibilities. Wanna sign up? click the link below.

Beyond Screenprinting:
Experimental Techniques with Lasers and Ink

This intensive inaugural course will do its best to bridge the gap between traditional and digital printing technology. Participants will be challenged to expand their printmaking knowledge beyond traditional techniques to include experimental monoprinting techniques with ink and lasers. Students will be introduced to the fine art applications of laser cutting on paper and cloth. Participants will learn advanced methods of handprinting (i.e. relief, intaglio with a slight focus on screenprinting applications) . This course will be team taught with time split between the printshop and the fablab. A basic knowledge of screenprinting is required and a basic knowledge of digital image editing is suggested. Participants should arrive with a commitment to experimentation and be ready for failure and triumph in equal amounts.

Monday April 12, 5-9pm at Print Shop,
Monday April 19, 5-9pm at Fab Lab team taught by Delia and Jenine

Sketches of a Portrait Project

from humble beginnings expect big things.

I just moved into a new studio space so I am slightly distracted by building projects. So if they turn out pretty I will post some pictures.
