Sketchbooks: Summer 2012 Folio of Printmaking Images

 Last year I decided to dedicate myself to printmaking during the Summer “Break.” I have been utilizing several studios around town including some private ones, to create these prints. This page represents a portfolio of printed images made during summer 2012. I’m also thinking of this as a part of my extended sketchbook archive (found on this site) .

“My son in front of Fiery landscape holding Fish.” Etching w/ aquatint Summer 2012

I don’t know what this image is about but it was inspired by some guy I gave directions to who was lost in Brooklyn. He wore a Sousaphone around his neck.  In my composition I placed him in front of a street shrine as if he were arriving to play a melancholic tribute. I like the idea of  juxtaposing the two ceremonies.

Le Cirque des Damnes, Etching w/ aquatint, Summer 2012

This was my first etching of the summer. It includes 22 figures, some masks, and a dog. When I think of etchings that inspire me I think of artist like Bruegel, Albrect Durer and contemporaries like Otto Dix, Martin Lewis, or Paul Landecre.

Silkscreen and Block-printing, Summer 2012

This is a silkscreen/block print combination which I adapted from one of my drawings.

My online epic (really Just Blogspot) Rolling City A Graphic Short in Block Prints required about 9 blocks this time around. It was long overdue.
