I took a print survey course this semester and have finally gotten around to taking pictures of all my work.
This is the first thing I made. It's a collograph printed in relief. We made the plates using signboard and tape and stickers, and I used a pen to carve some lines.
My second plate for the first project. Another collograph, printed in relief and intaglio. I changed which color I used for which process between the two prints.
This is a test plate I knocked out in a day for our linocut project. We were supposed to try different carving techniques. It's a relief print, of course.
Two different prints of my final linocut plate. The first is a bleed print (the paper didn't cover the entire plate) and the second shows the full plate. I think the plate is 8x10 inches.
Our next project was monotypes (ooak prints), so I have a lot of different work. We used plexiglass as our image matrix.
These used the same concept. The people are xerox transfers--I did the original drawings. The lady's frame is a stencil.
A quick monotype drawing.
This was inspired by Waiting for Godot--he reminds me of Didi or Gogo. I rolled out the ink and drew in it with the end of a paintbrush.
I had some fun with the solvents to make this one.
Then we did waterless litho. All the plates are 9x12 in. I made the plate with the skull and the girl, and the rest are prints from plates my classmates made. They're all intaglio.
These are my plates--the first image is just one plate, the other is both printed together. I was inspired by Day of the Dead (the project was right around Halloween)
Here's my two plates with a classmate's. Each plate was printed twice.
Some more of my plate with a classmate's.
I used two of my classmate's plates for this one. I loved the slice of pizza a lot, you can't really see but it has a face!
Our final project was copper etching--I have another post with pictures of my plate in progress lurking around. The plate was 9x13 inches and has both line etch and aquatint. This was my favorite project, although wiping it was an absolute pain! My professor's encouraging me to submit it to a local gallery that showcases student work, which would be awesome.I finally settled on the title 'D.I.Y. Predator.'
