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!
