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.

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.

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.

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″.

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

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

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.
