Mask sketches

For Chapter 6: Many Seeing Eyes
Some of these I like, others I really don't. In the end, I will be creating a wall (approx 2.5 feet or more tall) of miniature masks, so there will certainly be more pages of masks in the future.

With a roll of duck tape

I may use Photoshop, but I am a low-tech, little-money sort of person. See below.
That's right. Duck tape, an Ikea lamp, and some thread (the light brown lines) duck-taped to the wall and voila! It stays up (for 2 days!) miraculous. This was taken on the 3rd day and by then the right leg had slipped a little.

Preview of Chapter 5

Chapter 5: Two Feet to Dance

And a preview (the girl in the mask is there for a scale reference; she will be appearing in the final).

And more...



So I made a couple of prints on Sunday and Monday, and found it enjoyable. On Tuesday I talked to Rockhill Bakehouse about having a print show in the next couple of months. The same day I learned that the artist who was going to put work up on Sunday (tomorrow) couldn't do it, so would I be willing to put work up then? And, being me, I said yes.

I've spent the past few days making prints, framing, etc. and will be putting up the show tomorrow (good thing there's coffee there). So, stop by between the 8th and April 2nd to see the work, have a really good sandwich, or pick up the best bread on the East Coast.

All the prints are for sale, and as they're prints, I do have multiple copies of a number of them (on varying paper). If you are interested in purchasing work, please shoot me an email or give me a call.

More prints

The Traveler
From the Sky

Also known as procrastination. The middle image is from the linoleum block, the other two are rubber blocks. I found some cotton rag paper that I made a few years ago and the two singular creatures are printed on it.

I didn't work on anything I should have worked on yesterday, but would have felt guilty not doing anything, so......Found this rubber block from last year and decided to finally print it.
Then grabbed some linoleum from the attic to make this (cold linoleum is difficult to cut).
1 inch depth shadow box.
My mom likes there to be snow creatures in the front yard when I'm home. This one is over 6 feet tall.
