First Proof made in brooklyn. www.firstproofprints.com
This is really the last piece that will get made since I’m moving tomorrow (very excited! Giant studio!). As you can see it’s on boxes of my stuff.
I had one last commission, for a single print. He loved the BW images and asked if I could make something similar, was well received.

HOUSE KEYS! 

HOUSE KEYS! 

A little insight into the process. I print a second layer of black on top of the first. I find it gives a velvety texture to the print, the light diffuses differently across the surface.

Okay, back into the studio.

They’re always working on the buildings in the city, and every time I see one wrapped up I like to think it’s a secret Christo installation.

One of our friends is having a little girl. I picked up some booties and felt this needed to be done.
Good luck Hsin!

I stumbled across a way to vary the texture of the ink as it dries. If you look at this you can see a cross divides the large black plane. This is part of a commission for some missionaries, this seemed appropriate place to try it.

hairline gold trimmed border. I wish I had gotten it a little tighter, but I can work on that.

Printing past the edge. The ink as still wet when I snapped this hence the curl.
I need to do make more work like this and start using the edges or borders as a place to try something interesting.

Mi casa. I put in an offer on a house and it was accepted! I can’t believe it, it’s surreal. 

It has taken a lot out of me because the NYC housing market is super competitive. Serendipity struck.

This home has some exquisite details. Now I can rest a little easier and get back to pulling some prints. I might even put an actual print studio in the basement…afterall it’s mine!

… and the status quo will be obliterated

I’m sorry I’ve been delinquent in updating the blog, I’m in the process of some major life changing decisions (aka acting like the adult I am). 

Thanks for your patience.

Sketch of sorts. Two (poorly pulled) monoprints sliced up and merged by hand, Pixelgrafiek linked me to a print he pulled using this technique. I’m going to explore this idea through the month of February.

I’m a little worried, because I don’t think you can take two bad prints cut them up and make a good print. I think you need to pull two good prints and then slice them up. hmm.
