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.

If you’re in NYC later this week check out the Evil Prints booth at the E/AB Fair. Dolores, one of my recent prints (published by Evil Prints), will be on view.

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.

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.
