A Murder of Crows

For IF: The crows swarmed around the door, which was a portal to the other dimension.

I think I saw this in Busan

On another sweater note, I saw these prints and videos in, I think, Busan, South Korea. Some of the pieces were lithos, maybe, or maybe pen and ink, and some were videos of the sweater knitting itself. It was amazing to watch the sweater be created and unraveled. If I were more organized, I'd be able to tell you who the artist is. I'll keep looking.

Litho scan

For IF: She really needed a sweater, but these darn things clutching her head were in the way.

Sorry. Couldn't resist. This is actually a litho plate that I'l getting set up to print on an etching press. The crayon is too light, and I've had a little tusche trouble, as you can see. Who knew you had to wash/counter-etch a plate before you drew on it? That's another thing to add to my Ox-Bow paper. I hope I can post a print of this soon.

Check out my next post for real sweater art!

Engine for new quilt

For IF: Even with her engine in reverse, she couldn't stop herself from lifting off the hill.

Actually, this is part of one of the drawing for my new print quilt, Dreamer in Training. I'm burning another test plate for this today; the first one turned out way too light. I'm going to radically pull back on the exposure this time; another reversal!
