slightly wonky

Another one

Okay, so here is another one in this series.  I like this, as I both changed the paper, and I tried to have more ink.  These are reductive prints, meaning: I start out with the plate fully covered with ink, and then I wipe away the areas that I don’t want to have color.  Messy!  So, this last time, I tried to leave more ink on the plate.  Better.


New ink

So, I’ve got some new ink.  I like it!  It’s this non-toxic stuff that cleans up pretty easily.  Which is good, as I tend to get it all over my hands.  I’m pretty good about wearing gloves for awhile…but then I always end up throwing them on the table and just getting my hands inky.  So, as I’ve mentioned previously, I have a hard time keeping my hands looking somewhat reasonable.

This is sort of an odd, cartoonish series.  Not sure where I’m going here.  I was thinking of children’s drawings, but then with an adult mind and the heaviness that it brings.  I may try a different paper, as this one is quite bumpy (toothy?)  Hmm…I was initially thinking that these were neat, but now I’m not so sure…
