I haven’t printed this block since 2008, but revisited it yesterday as the confusion of intersecting lines was a precursor to my recent Chaparral series.
I’m really interested in failure these days.
The Myth of Sisyphus, by Albert Camus, is a philosophical essay from 1942 about man’s futile search for meaning in an absurd world. The Nobel Prize winning existentialist is one of my favorite writers, and I recommend reading The Stranger as well, which I’ve also illustrated.
I’m not much of a Car Guy, but this was a fun little demo to carve during the printmaking workshop on Saturday. It’s a deep red Mercedes from the 80’s, also known as Molly Ringwald.
Saturday’s printmaking workshop in Warren was a lot of fun and I met a lot of talented artists and creatives who made some beautiful and intricate linocut prints on their first try! I’ve received positive feedback and am now considering organizing another this summer.
I’m very excited to put on a workshop about my favorite medium, the linocut, at The Collaborative in Warren next month. Teaching drawing, painting, and design is great fun, but I’d really like to see more people interested in relief printing, which can be easily accessible and done at home any time!
