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.

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.
