Second Chance 005

This was finished about a week ago and I just finally had time to scan it. I ate some tri-colored hummus today and it was pretty good.

Second Chance 005

Six colors down and four more expected to be done within the next week. Meanwhile, I've watched the first season of the West Wing, and five or six episodes into season two.

Second Chance 004

Except for finishing this print, I haven't done much in the last few days. I did about 20 loads of laundry over the weekend.

Slideluck Potshow

I just found out today that a series of photos I submitted were accepted for showing at this year's Slideluck Potshow Chicago. It is a one-night-only photography exhibit in the form of a 2 hour slideshow. It also includes a potluck dinner. So pack up something good to eat and come over to 1287 N. Milwaukee Ave next Saturday, October 17th at 7 pm. It is only a week away.

I finished designing and updating all the information on the GSU Artsfest blog, and while I'm thinking about it, I thought I'd invite both of my loyal readers to stop by the school next Wednesday and check out the activities. I'm not sure right now where I'll be spending most of the day. Last year, and the year before that, I helped visitors to print their own t-shirts. That was a lot of fun. This year, I might be expected to deal with gallery responsibilities. There's also a student art sale that day, so I might have to run that. In any event, the blog looks pretty good to me. I designed the promo cards and posters and I think they look pretty good too.

Things are moving right along these last few days. Here, I'm four colors into my next print. These posts are going to be pretty boring if I just keep saying "two colors done, three colors done, etc." Maybe we can liven things up with some reader suggestions. Anyone know a good, free, Spanish language teaching podcast? I want to learn Spanish. Not Spain Spanish, but Mexican Spanish. The last podcast I tried was teaching a northern Spain dialect, and it was produced by a pair of native Scots speaking with a Scottish accent. That was too much.

Le Tigre

These things always take a little longer than expected. Anyway this one is finished and I am really happy with it. I printed the tenth and final color today. I was considering leaving it off because I thought it looked pretty good without it, but the last black made a real difference. I made an edition of 17 prints. Four or five are going to Canada for an exhibition themed around the year of the tiger. I don't know what I'll do with the rest.

After finishing this print, I started on my next one by preparing my screens, emulsifying them, exposing them, and even printing the first color. Not bad considering how lazy I am.
