Laser Failure

Here are the samples of tests I did this weekend on the laser cutter.
They are mostly based on the ink drawings above that I made last summer. It has been interesting to say the least to morph into a new medium. I wanna push farther.

yes the brown spots are burn marks.

Small works in progress from my basement world

Possibly spurned on by the size limitation of the AS220 laser cutter and possibly because its fun to work fast-I am making some small works. I offer them to you in progress for your consideration. In my teaching and personal life I really enjoy seeing art work in an artist's studio. I also like to take pictures of my works in progress cause there are always some duds that fall away, and they deserve to get their due.

NUA Zine Fair Saturday APRIL 10

Looking and Finding.

Currently, I am rooting though the 2 rubbermade storage "totes" that I lugged the past 10 years through least 8 moves. They hold the paper archive of ephemera from my young adulthood. I am doing this to find the raw material I am going to talk about this Saturday @ the New Urban Arts ZINE FAIR. I am helping close out the day by speaking on a panel starting at 5 PM.

Roger Williams University Visiting Artist Lecture

I take it as a good sign that my talk distracted Jo to the point where she forgot to take photos till the very end. so here are a couple of shots that protect my anonymity.

(trapped in a mask of my own making).

It was pouring buckets of rain outside, it felt a little other worldly. I was glad for the excuse to check out RWU. From under the umbrella the campus looks like a mighty fine place to be. The students asked interesting questions. I didn't get to see much of what they were working on, but they laughed at my jokes and for that I am grateful. I hope my pep talk about how to be a professional printmaker was helpful.
