Getting ready for "Moral Compass" portfolio...

I will use this to transfer with red oxide paper onto the stone.
We use our side porch for graining our stones at L VIS Press.
I grain up to #280 carborundum grit. Some stop at #220
I use stone to stone to grain, following a figure "8" pattern.
Check for levelness then moved with hydraulic into the studio.
Getting ready to transfer the image but until then I cover my stone with newsprint to avoid any loose debris or dust particles that may be floating around.
Just got a portfolio back for "Hatebreeders". Am really liking Doug Bosley's work.

I've just started studying lithography, and found your blog. It is super helpful to see what I can do with it. I will be reading it! :)

How do you find such interesting portfolios to participate in? I've done a number of exchange portfolios but I'm never happy with the quality of work that I receive back. I would love to find portfolio opportunities that were on a higher level so any tips on how to go about this would be greatly appreciated.
