These pictures of my prints are awful and I can't say much more about the prints for that matter. Maybe they look better in person? Anyways, I may not be happy with my body of work this term but I created a lot of work and stayed engaged and busy for the most part. I got to print a multi-layer woodblock (the two bottom prints) this term and I had fun doing it. I didn't experiment with my etching but I will be getting down with some aquatint and engravings come Fall. As for the Summer I will be painting up a storm and printing more multi-layer woodblocks in my basement. Maybe I'll even try a suicide block, that will twist my brain into a big ol' knot.

Mixed media on plastic sheet. Intaglio print 11' x 15'

Mixed media on cardboard. Intaglio print 11' x 15'

Dry point on foam board. Relief print 11' x 15'

The quarter is starting off really well. I've been pretty on top of
my school work, I mean look I already have three prints!
Yesterday was a total loss, ugh I dislike thinking about it. The
night before I had too much caffeine and couldn't rest fully. In
the morning I had breakfast with a gorgeous man but the rest of
the day dragged on. Could hardly keep my eyes open in class and
spent my time at home half awake. Today will be better, going to
be super productive and get all kindz of stuff done.

Fun with microns

Drew these little guys for some friends of mine. School is in full swing again and I must say I am actually enjoying it. Hopefully I'll have some prints up soonish.

Portland is a magical vortex

Steady now
Steady now
Steady now
About one
Mile per hour
Mile per hour
Mile per hour
Slow and steady
Slow and steady
And I've never been more
Touched by
Girls hands

Pretty little fingers
They will become the stars
The world is
A rolling stone
Simultaneously gathering and
They will become the stars

Living through music I guess you could say.

Its ridiculous how much I listen to music. I'm constantly singing,
lyrics always running through my mind, so much so that I'll be in
a car other than my own, or out somewhere with friends, at the
movies or whatever and I'll have moments where I'm wishing
that I was listening to a particular song instead of doing
whatever I'm doing. I guess you could call it obsessive but music
just means so much to me. Plain and simple. I get such a thrill
and so many emotions running through me when I listen to
songs that I love. I relate to them so much. I've had Algernon
Cadwallader songs playing in my head for the last three days, I
don't want it to end.

Feels like the next step is to start playing music.
