Robot Invasion, new old stuff in the store, my awesome sister
Yep, today I brought out the old Happy Robot woodblock and played around with making prints again. I forgot how much fun relief printing is. I miss using a big press though, for the small edition I made tonight I just used a brayer. I'm totally excited about it though, and want to get some new wood or lino-blocks to make some new imagery.
Here is a bot, with some an art card I've yet to finish, and another small beeswax painting/collage I've yet to upload.
That reminds me of a time in high school when our art teacher gave us an assignment to make a collage. So I made this thing with paint splattered on cardboard and chickenwire...and maybe there was tape too, I can't remember. Well, I was thinking of collage as disparate elements brought together to make a new whole. When I got my "collage" back it had gotten a "B" instead of an "A" because she wanted everyone to make like a magazine cutouts type of collage. Pffft. Oh well, I guess it was one of many instances where I was just trying to be AVANT GARDE! hah!
This reminds me of another story involving a 10 year old me painting pink and blue horses, but that tale is for another time perhaps. I did tell the story to my little sister though, and she thought it was funny. By the way, SHE'S AWESOME, and here's a doodle and drawing she sent me today:
Yay for the little sister! Keep it up! Geez lou-eeeez I'm tired. Time to go pass out for another evening.
