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.

Does this little guy have a name? He is so appealing. The colors are much brighter in this series but the subtle colors were also beautiful.

Well, the first one I called “Atlas”, for obvious reasons. Then, I just kept making more prints with him in it. Perhaps it’s getting a bit silly now. Yes, the colors are bold. I’m just working with the primaries, no color mixing. The other colors come from the layers of printing.

naturally, because the colors are bold I LOVE IT! So now that you’re creating all of these fabulous pieces of art…what pray tell, are you going to do with all of them? ‘Cause I was thinking, that unused garage you have, that could make for a great gallery…(or guest room)

Umm…next time you come over, I’ll take you into our unused cave, I mean, garage. You might need to get some kind of haz-mat suit to go in there…

um. love it. love everything about it really. the colors. the guy. the inconsistency. you should aim to do a ‘show’ before your unemployment expires. nice goal for you and a cool way to showcase the fruits of your labor.
