Blick St. Louis

On August 4th Carlos Hernandez and I were spreading the word about new Speedball professional inks at the Blick store in St. Louis. We’ll be visiting more art materials stores throughout the country this year and next – Stay tuned!

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.

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.

On August 26th I participated in the North Carolina Museum of Art’s Monster Drawing Rally. Cranked out a chitlins drawing and some cartoons. Hope to do it again next year!

I’m super excited about Speedball’s new line of Professional Relief Inks. I’ve been helping develop them over the last few years – specifically the Supergraphic Black ink. I’ve printed hundreds of linocuts with it and have had nothing but excellent results. Its water-miscible (cleans up with water-based solvents. Window cleaner works great!) and holds detail beautifully. Another feature that I like is that it never builds up on the block so you never need to strip it. Here are two short videos made by Jim Haverkamp that highlight the ink.


My show at SECCA, Chamber of Chills, has been extended to August 7th.

Chamber of Chills Viewers lower res

If you happen to be in the Winston-Salem, NC area from now until late July check out my show at the Southeastern Center for Contemporary Art (SECCA). Its called Chamber of Chills and consists of hundreds of linocuts and screen prints pasted to the walls and floor. The title is based on a horror comic book series from the 1950s of the same title.

This installation is part of an ongoing series at  SECCA called 12 x 12. “12 x 12 gives artists from across North Carolina a public platform for continued artistic development and recognition in the place where they live and work, and beyond. At the same time, the series aims to push conversation around contemporary art forward and to consider the significance of localism as a curatorial framework. What does it mean to these artists to be working in the South and Southeast today, especially after the Internet and Globalization?”

The most recent version of Scary Wall (#3) is currently on view at the Ft. Wayne Museum of Art as part of the OUT OF PRINT exhibit.

Link to a video about the show HERE.

On view from March 19th 2016 – May 29th 2016

“Out of Print features artists that are part of the New Contemporary movement who work primarily with printmaking. Each of the artists chosen for this exhibition push the boundaries of printmaking and challenge the traditional modes of this particular art form that has been practiced by artists for centuries. Exhibiting artists include: Bill Fick, Chuck Sperry, Crystal Wagner, Dennis McNett, Greg Gossel, Morning Breath, Ravi Zupa, and Troy Lovegates.”

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.
