So what better to do if you're a printmaker than take out your aggression with stamps? Yes indeedy, come and get your all-purpose Pre-Existing Condition stamp:
Go ahead and pre-empt your insurance company- just stamp it yourself! What's really great is that you can apply it to anything. Like if someone blames you for a mess in the house...or dinner got burned. Or hey,what if your home needs some serious repair? Don't worry about it- it's pre-existing!
Just stamp it!
Okay, but really- I made the stamp for some work I am currently producing for a show on political issues/society/justice. Here be the finished work:
graphite and linocut, 2012
I also did another piece on the gas lines and drilling from my family's country back home in PA:
pencil and gouache, 2012
Other than that, I completed a small copper plate in the fall:
Empty Grove, etching and mezzotint, 2011
And of course lots of little test plates with zinc and misc linocut cards. Ah yes, and I also took a letterpress business card class at local Steam Whistle Press, loads of fun!
So I'm really looking forward to the saline sulfate etch and finally getting that big zinc plate into the bath. Mmm...
