I’ve recently installed a mural at Greenhill Gallery in Greensboro, NC. Its part of the ANIMATED! exhibit that will be up from September 6 – November 9. Here’s a stop-motion video of the work in progress.

Here’s an image I made for a portfolio organized by Joe Lupo at West Virginia University. The portfolio, NOT Approved By The Comics Code Authority, included work by 9 artists who are influenced by comics.

This summer I made a mural using vertical screen printing techniques I recently learned from my friend Stefan Hoffmann. The content of the mural was appropriated from images in the Edwin and Terry Murray Comic Book Collection found in the Rare Book, Manuscript, and Special Collections Library at Duke (+ from a Steve Ditko monograph and Love and Rockets, New Stories No. 1 by the Hernandez brothers). In the past four years I’ve been using the Murray Collection as a teaching tool and resource for my Art of the Comic Book and Zines class. It’s an amazing resource with over 75,000 comics! I really enjoyed making the mural and plan to make more in the future using some of my original stuff. For more info on vertical screen printing go to: www.verticalscreenprinting.com

Here’s a letterpress coloring book published by Cockeyed Press that I made in collaboration with the folks at Artists Image Resource (AIR) in Pittsburgh, PA. The cover is a four color screen print. The pages were crayoned by visitors to AIR in February. Link here to read about the projects.

Exploring the possibility of making a print studio in a 20’ box truck. Testing out how it might work with @biovarg and @matthewtauch Thinking it would be a great way to spread the gospel of print! Would love to hear from others about portable studios or truck studios. #portablestudio #studioonwheels #screenprinting #screenmachine #screenprintshop #diyscreenprinting #printingpress #printtruck
Just finished giving my new @speedball_art 12” x 24” etching press with gear drive and metal bed a test drive and am very very happy with the performance 👌👌👌💥💥💥. Felt it was appropriate to proof a Mr. Bones block as I used #supergraphicblack Also very excited to use the brand new Arnhem 1618, 245 gsm, 22” x 30” Kraft colored paper. It prints beautifully! There is also a grey and black. Coming soon!!! Thanks team Speedball!!! Can’t wait to use the press when traveling around spreading the gospel of printmaking! #printposse #etchingpress #reliefprint #reliefprinting #reliefprintmaking #linocut #printmaking #fineartpaper

If you want a super reliable, very rich black ink try Speedball's SUPERGRAPHIC BLACK by Bill Fick. It's oil-based but cleans up with soap and water!

I Luv Linoleum

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.
