Looking Back & Packing Up
I've been tinkering away in the printmaking studio for some time now, and have just started the process of packing up. My summer adventure will start before I know it. One of my favorite parts about packing (I do it a lot) is coming across gems that strike the nostalgia chord just right. This was a process shot when a few friends and I put on our first art show. The show's name, converge, sent us into the letterpress room to see how we could make a bad-ass show card to distribute. As someone who does not speak computer / technology fluently, it was such a nice experience to have ideas to cut and paste and move around to get everything just right. A friend was a wizard with the letterpress and Vandercook printing presses. She churned out a handful of options then together we went to town sorting, cutting, pasting, moving, and shaking. I hope to get to use the letterpress more someday in the future.
