Finally I'm feeling like a working routine is trying to develop.
I've been so busy this year. 
I drew up hundreds of BurgerGuys for
and then drew for the Exhibit Labels book, 
which I just completed for Beverly Serrell.
There was intense preparation for teaching 
whiteline woodblock and collagraphy classes at the Peninsula School of Art.
FINALLY I am getting to print some of the plates I made in some stolen times.
Right now I'm printing "Dodgeville"
which I did sitting on the Schurmans Cheese picnic table,
while waiting for brakes to be put into the car.
This is a cell phone pic of print #2
which I just taped up to dry.
I hope to get three more from the plate.
Drypoints in aluminum allows for about 5 good prints.
I'll have them out for the Fall Art Tour.

Bent plate

I couldn't stop myself. 
I was just messing around....experimenting.
I should have known better.
I grabbed a too thin aluminum plate that was lumpy...
Bent, not straight...yes, lumpy. 
I got carried away....on a lumpy plate.
I'll work to get a good print of it...
and never, ever use a lumpy, bent plate again!!

First collagraphs!

Pirate Island
SO excited!
Etching press squared up and working great!
These ARE the first proofs from the press in the new studio...
and with NEW blankets!
No, not the best photos, but they have to dry before I flatten them...
and I just didn't want to wait til then.
SO good to see this!
More later!

Collagraphy at Peninsula School of Art

These are a few of my collagraphs, some of which I've hand colored.  THIS is what I'll be teaching in the collagraph class at the Peninsula School of Art.

I'll be instructing how I do this 
at the Peninsula School of Art in July.
I follow the safety-first collagraphy system of 
Carol Robertson and Robert Adam's book
