Some Day My Press Will Come

Seriously though. Anyway here is an update of what I've been up to in the cave printlab.

"Swan Song"
3 color plate. This turned out better than I thought, not as good as I hoped. The colors aren't exactly what I hoped for so theres still quite a bit of tweaking to do.

A rather failed attempted for my landscape class. We were supposed to find something to draw that the rail station. Dear god the banality of it all. I was so bored.

Some how I found it in myself to revisit the idea of the railroad. Somehow a picture of a guy with his bike became a man with a top hat, and that turned into a steam train. And then out of sheer boredom and three of these guys popped up into the trees

"Untitled", Original line etch
I like this version so much better. I'm sad I didn't take my own advice and run an edition before aquatinting.

Sketch for etching

etch of the garden behind Borders at the Davis Commons

"Wild Rumpus"
One redo, several hours of aquatint, dry point later I'm done.
Holy crap its done. Well kinda, I still need to get all thirty editions done.

Want to know a secret?

The ending of Pirate Radio makes me sob like a baby. Every. Damn. Time. When they see the boats coming I just lose it.

In other news, we visited the private collection at the gap headquarters which was...not exactly my aesthetic. But S.F with the tribe was a good time and we kicked it at the little dive on the Embarcadero. Naturally it called for some hipstermatic to capture the moment.

 ah. douche boner.
 the only art piece that we could photograph in the gap hq: the charlie brown by Richard Serra

 Noming at the Red Java

 cruising the streets

 Golden Gate

 bye sf.

 Some intaglio for regurgitating reinventing the landscape.

Test prints for new piece

All together now!

Alrighty. thats it for now.
