Visiting Artist edition at OU (Athens, Ohio)

"Rising from the Ashes", stone and plate lithography
Just returned from Athens, Ohio where I was invited to be a visiting artist at OU for the last week in October.  Incredible place, the students, faculty and the facilities were excellent.  Plus, it was Halloween season and there were lots of parties. Apparently Athens is the capitol of Halloween celebrations. Work hard play hard, my kinda place.
In addition to the talented students I got to hang out with two of the country's best master printers, Karla Hackenmiller and Art Werger.  Felt like I needed to step up my game around such great ones.  Their students were so talented in their own right as well as amazing to help print this 6 color edition in 4 days.  Two of those days we printed 2 colors.  We stripped the prints between runs and did a "dry wet" sponge on our last rolls.  Big kudos to Ohio University printmakers, had a blast and feel great about the work we did together.
