November 29th 2012

so last night I printed at Webster hall in NYC as part of a one night event there.  I set up an Art Bar.......where I asked the guests to pick colors for the prints as well as input.........I was set up behind the bar as the ArtTender...........these are the prints created that night........

These prints were created yesterday, Nov 27th in preparation for a live print thing I will be doing this
evening at Webster Hall in NYC as part of the Quarterly Art Soiree, an event they host of music, art, and performance.  These are smaller pieces than usual, 9"x12", and as I print them I am going to hang them across a clothesline. 
I have noticed a similarity to this monoprint series with my digital drawing in terms of shapes and forms.  The painterly quality of these pieces I think opens up the viewers interpretation more to content, context, and narrative.

This drawing was first started on October 16th 2009.  I usually draw these images loosely then redraw the image in Adobe Illustrator later.  I have been going over these images from the past and hope to put them into a series or a book form

Nov 25..........two new prints

These were prints from today........I started reintroducing using plastic wrap to create textures and pull off ink in interesting ways I think.  I need to purchase more paper........tomorrow I guess.
Always trying to find a balance between making money and making new work..........

Monoprint Nov 24, 2012

This piece is an overprint........the color was done first and the black layer was selectively printed over that layer.  It is printed on Arches 88 paper and is H:42"xW:30"

November 23, 2012

This morning I did a couple of monoprints, the one at top was the first one of the day.  For the first time I used a plastic comb like brush which gave me the marks made with with the multiple lines.
The second piece was made with the roller only, the traditional way I have been making the prints.

On the bottom two pieces I tried two separate images on one sheet, and I used the paper Lana, which is different from the tradtional Arches 88 I have been working with.  The paper has a bit of a texture which modulates the midtones quite a bit.  I was thinking of a series of these printed front and back which would at some point be brought together in a book form.

First Posting, Nov 12, 2012

So last night I had a vision of the internet being a vast living conscious organism that feeds off of human consciousness.  It draws us in by giving us what we want, even creating the hook ourselves to draw us into its realm.  There it sucks our souls into itself.
I had heard that gods exist if people believe in them............we have become so socially dependent on relationships through these screens that the virtual space has become almost more important than the real world. 
Perhaps this is a new frontier.  I used to think that the television realm had the same effect, we would all be tuned in at the same time, watch the same things.......
I had a dream where I was in a movie watching a movie.  The characters stood at the front of the screen looking out, like they could see beyond the screen into my world, and visa versa.  Somehow I was able to reach across for a second and physically touch their world, they thought it was a ghost..........
I have been working on the first color layer on this piece this week.  Today I hope to finish out the first color and start adding the contrast for the second color layer........
