Had a great time hanging out with Amy Dean and the Jerry’s Artarama film crew making this video about my work, linocutting, and awesome Speedball relief print materials.

Carlos Hernandez and I collaborated on this Speedball commemorative print for the St. Louis Scratch Fest – August 5th. I printed the linocut werewolf and Carlos screen printed all the text and details. More of these kinds of prints coming as we continue our “Get Inked” tour this year and next.

Too Late

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.

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.

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

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.
