I was able to finish a new book for the Brooklyn fest this weekend. I was inspired to do a smaller and simpler book. It’s 24 pages long, and 2.5 x 5.5 inches long, and uses 3 colors (as opposed to my usual 6 colors). It has a story with an environmental theme, humans cutting … Read More
My latest sewing creation: the chimp pillow. You get two chimps one one pillow for variety. The poses were sort of inspired from Bruce Lee. I a perfect world, I would put an audio device in the pillow that made sound whenever you punched the pillow, but right now it’s not feasible financially.
Continuing my quest to have a wider range of products, I decided to print my popular t-rex design on fabric which I then sewed to make cushions and bags. Everybody’s been telling me I should print on tote bags, but I personally don’t like tote bags. I do like backpacks though, and this design is … Read More
Sorry about the crummy pictures…I really wish my DSLR camera hadn’t been broken by a certain someone who shall remain nameless. I’m stuck with a point and shoot for the long haul. Anyway… Back from a long hiatus, here is my newest book “The Ordovician and the Silurian”. It’s a long title, but I have … Read More
Here’s an accordion book of the etchings I’ve been doing. To reiterate, I’ve been doing etchings of the dioramas at the Museum of Natural History. The book has 8 etchings. which uses a mixture of hardground and aquatint.. I only have 6 copies of the book, so it’s the most expensive book I’ve ever made … Read More
I got a sewing machine 4 years ago, which I never used. I also have a lot of stuffing that’s just been sitting in a closet. Since I saw people (really Shannon, who does pillows) at the SVA printshop printing on fabric, I was inspired to try the same. This is the first time I’ve … Read More
For my second monoprint, I did a gorilla. I drew it from memory, which is why to me it looks a bit cartoony. I think I should have just made the whole eye black instead of showing the whites of the eyes. This monoprint is made using a brayer, and I have trouble making fine … Read More
Here’s yet another etching of elephants. This is actually two plates pushed together to make one image.
I’m taking Bruce Waldman’s etching class this summer, doing a series of etching of the Museum of Natural History dioramas which I will post in the next couple of weeks. So far I have been using a lot of aquatint to shade my etching, but I’ve become frustrated with aquatint since it keeps getting fainter … Read More
I haven’t posted any new work in a while, so I thought I should post a work in progress. I’ll probably only end up making one book this summer because I ended up using this time to reprint some previous books. It’s the sequel to “The Cambrian”: the Ordovician and Silurian. I originally planned on … Read More
