"92,955,807,273 mi"

This print was finished a few weeks ago but don't remember if I posted the final print.  It ended up being 7 colors. I'm now working on a new edition (50 prints), plan on 6 colors.  Not motivated to draw right now.  Wish I had some free time to experiment in the studio.

New Sketch for next edition...




Just can't make up my mind.  In the next 5 hours I need to transfer one of these onto a stone.  I grained an extra stone so I might do two.  It will probably be a 6 color print.  Busier than spit. I like the girl with the iron but am leaning toward the girl next to the tornado.

A Day of Researching Ideas...


Wish I still had one of these especially for $2.98.
Queen for a Day TV series...she probably just won a washer and a dryer. Yippee!
Just a reminder in case you forget what day of the week it is.
Grew up next to one of these...
I love stripes...  They look like dirty smoking peppermint sticks.

If I could do this I would...

More Hidden Room Sketches

6th Color Printed from Smart Plate


Drew with sharpie onto a smart plate for the 6th color. All of the plates for each color held up really well through 50 prints.  I draw on the Smart plates 24 hours before I print.  By allowing the sharpie to "set up" well (at least overnight) it doesn't seem to break down or integrate with the ink.  For example if I print too soon the black sharpie will mix in with the ink, yellow ink will turn green.

Pochoir Pink

Thinking about using pochoir again for my upcoming print. I used an old polyester plate to cut the stencil...rolled out the pink ink on the slab and stippled it around the edges.  It went very quickly.
