Pensamientos de Nosotros (&wallpaper); 2011; Digital Print
I finished and submitted to the national gallary portrait contest. I wont find out if i’m a semi finalist until april 2012, Five whole months. I am nervous in every sense. Most of my faculty is behind me on this work, and so are my classmates. I with every fiber of my being, can only hope. If anything, there’s always in another 3 years. I’m excited to have the work up and i’m currently working on another print series.—
Exhibits of why i still exist. 2011. Photo Intaglio.
Exhibit A: His Ghost
Exhibit B: Warm Embraces
Its taken me a while to finally get this image set straight, i realized one day that these images ment to be paired together and not separate, i’ve also decided that i’m making this semester my ‘Payne’s grey” semester.
So my MAT (Masters in Art Teaching ) thesis is going to be Printmaking and how it can further enrich the art curriculum. I SO JUST ORDERED 47$ of BOOKS on JUST PRINTMAKING, its going to be christmas all month.
I got the tamarind book (the old vers.) and the complete printmaker book too the one from 1978 AND the 1995 edition (on top of 5 other books) . I LOVE seeing the differences over time. I’m just hoping Amazon ships these books out in the next week or two. I NEED TO GET READING ASAP.
i told you i’d use this gif again.
Anyways, I’ve entered work into the DC art bank and crossing my fingers they’ll want some of my work.
I’ve been on a stall, not enough time in the day to work on my own stuff. I’ll soon just pull late nights and disregard sleep again, so eventually you’ll see more finished prints and maybe the selfportrait printed soon. (Seeing as that needs to be submitted by the end of the month. oops)
Litho reduction. This dang Stone is 34x24; I like the brilliant lithographer that I am, managed to close the stone with SILVER ink, a no no. So of course seeing as it’s a black slate reduction… IT WASN’T CO OPERATING… luckily after a few hrs of performing lithographic ER maneuvers I fixed it and managed to reduce. SCORE!
Photo polymer plates : Solar and KM plates. I’m enjoying printing these two images, one is of my grand parents on the beach in the 40’s or so , the other I think of it as this person as a ghost, their memory is every where but they’re not around but I care deeply. Anyways, I’m learning and experimenting and so soon I’ll have these in a larger size… Maybe.
Well, I’ve begun the 5th year of my BFA / MAT program and officially now a graduate! Wooo! Its so far been exciting and a whole lot of work. I know i’ll get used to it but geez, i didn’t think i’d over booked. Buuuuut i did.
I have work at the Corcoran Gallary of Art gift shop and its so far sold a few prints (apparently) Here’s to hoping for an extra boost in promo!
I’ll be in an Southern Graphics International print portfolio for this year. Pretty stoked although its going to be a 20x24in print. crap, better get cracking.
Also, I’ll be head minioning and printing for the corcoran print portfolio… obviously i love to print.
So far i’ve been working on that illustration »»>
Its Done, now its to print and debate if i’ll make it wall paper or not. Will take for - ev- er. Alas.
I still haven’t finished that 24x30in litho stone, dang trying to be an overacheiver ;D
I have a lino cut series im working on and i have a few plots for prints, but nothing done so far.
I’ve been working for several local artists and such so hopefully all of that EXP. will come in handy when i go to settle down on what i want to do forever.
SO, work is going to slowly stream in and also as i digitize all of my work.
Thanks for tumblr’in
EDIT( THIS GIF IS AWESOME. USE IT FOREVER.)
