100 Watercolors #7: Heaven


Did I say I was going to post my first screen print this week? Whoops! That process is taking a bit longer than I thought it would, so in the meantime, here is Watercolor #7! I'm not sure this one makes PERFECT sense... but every time I look at it, it makes me chuckle, so that's good enough for me!
I'm going to out of town next weekend at the Small Press Expo in Washington D.C. so we'll see what happens... I'll post something!

Screen Printing: Part 1

This week at CCS I will be learning how to screen print. This will be my first time ever, so I am pretty excited! Our first project is to create a "Facebook" for the new class. Each new student (and the Fellows) will have a photocopied bio on one page, and on the other we get to have a two-color screen-printed self portrait. My design is above, which shows how I started the school year, and how I will most likely end it, with my Basewood Beard.

Next week I'll post the finished image. Wish me luck!

I had a lot of fun with this one. And as predicted, I am learning a lot by working on these watercolors. Hooray for art challenges!

Top Secret Illustration


I didn't have time to paint another theme this week, so instead I'm posting this illustration I have been working on, from a top secret project that I have not yet "officially" announced. Some of you might be able to guess what this is... I'll let the cat out of the bag over on my other blog, probably within a week or two!
