Steamroller Printmaking Class

Last week I began a steamroller printmaking class at the Lawrence Arts Center. This is the second printmaking class I've ever taken. Both have been at the LAC. My first was a woodcut class from the late Sally Piller. I'm excited to work and learn with Tonja Torgerson this time around and see what my fellow classmates come up with. We each have a 3x8 foot MDF block to carve.

I'm working on a Life Aquatic themed print. The main image will be from the submarine scene toward the end of the film. I've already started carving and can't wait to see how it looks when it's done. Our class will be printing our work on May 26 in downtown Lawrence immediately after the Art Tougeou parade. I'll update as it gets closer, but I'll be documenting the progress on my Instagram: @seeforce. 

Gearing Up

The slate of spring and summer shows is almost set. I'll be setting up shop around the state of Kansas and venturing to Iowa, Missouri, and Arkansas. While these shows are often a lot of work and a strain on my family, I thoroughly enjoy them. The opportunity to have my work seen and purchased by so many different people is always such an immense pleasure. I love being able to talk with people about their connection to an image or a place. I feel so lucky to be able to do this and can't wait to show you some of the new work.
