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.

St. Louis Poster

I’m heading to St. Louis in a couple of weeks. This trip is part of a Speedball tour I’m on with Houston artist Carlos Hernandez. We’ll be demoing at a Dick Blick Store (Aug. 4) and the Artmart (Aug 5). I’ll be highlighting the awesome Speedball Pro Relief Supergraphic Black Ink. On the 6th we’ll be tabling at Tom Huck’s INK BANGERZ event. If you’re in town come say hello! A special commemorative collaborative print will be available. See below for image of the poster.

On November 3rd I visited the School of Visual Arts (SVA) Printmaking area and spread the good word about linocut printmaking. They’ve got a really impressive setup there. Thanks to Dom Rapone for inviting me.

Had a fantastic trip to Ohio State University earlier this month. Got to work with a dynamic group of printmaking students and their professor Sergio Soave. Sergio and I have known each other for many years going back to a visiting gig I did at West Virginia University in the 90’s. Thanks to Adam, Allison and Sarah of the Student Printmaking Association for being such excellent hosts. Below are images of a print mural we made. 120 linocut prints, measuring 9′ x 60′. I also visited Ohio University. More about that soon.

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 some good press about Fick and Supergraphic in The Durham News. Thanks to Deborah Meyer for the article and Harry Lynch for the photos.

SPEEDBALL PRO RELIEF INK!

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.
