6 Pigbat prints were recently on view at the Weatherspoon Art Museum in Greensboro, NC. as part of the biennial Art on Paper show. Very cool to see them side by side and stacked up to about 10 feet tall. These hand-colored screen prints were made at Artists Image Resource (AIR) in Pittsburgh in 2010.

Pigbats at Weatherspoon Art Museum

6 Pigbat Prints. Each measures 38″ x 33″.

Here’s a short documentary by Ayanna Seals and Frith Gowan about my interest in making monster images. The piece was made during a summer workshop taught by Jim Haverkamp at The Center for Documentary Studies in Durham, NC.

In late April I was in Corpus Christi, TX participating in the Oso Bay Biennial. Tom Huck and I were the jurors for the Oso Bay North American Printmaking Exhibit at the Islander Gallery. We also had a show at K Space Contemporary Gallery called NASTY. I showed a wall full of Skulls and Skullareks + some recent large images floating on top (see photo below). Huck premiered his Hillbilly Kama Sutra suite. Lots of other good stuff took place during the week, highlighted by Dennis McNett’s “Wolfbats Beseech the Great Bear of Oso Bay” performance. Here’s a nice write up about it on Printeresting by Jeff Dell.

The Skullarek series continues. It’ll be editioned and on t-shirts.

Where to buy linoleum

The best place to buy linoleum is Dick Blick. Choose from a variety of pre-cut sizes or by the role. Battleship Gray is best.
