early trick or treat?

What a treat!

I got to take a 1 day monotype workshop today.

I’ve always been attracted to the idea of printmaking, but never had the means to explore the process.  I ended up having the best time in recent memory.

Big thanks to Matt Christie for having me.  He really seemed to be in two places at once today and helped us all make some pretty great work.

Matt Christie - master printmaker

Matt Christie - master printer

and thanks to Dick Carter who took these great photos using a ‘stitch’ application on his iphone.

Here are some crappy snapshots of the prints I made today – all from the same plate – in no particular order:

What a great class!

    Great stuff. I did a lot of printmaking in school and miss the process a lot, and that smell of ink! These a really great!
