Printmaking = Happiness
I love printmaking.
Michele + Printmaking = forever.
So I printed my block print finally. It looks cool. I want to do more. I realized, after someone pointed it out to me, that the word I wrote should be backwards...oh well :) I didn't really like the words anyway.
I want to do some dry point etchings, but that requires a press unfortunately. Although I did find an article online about how this guy used his car to run over his plates, thus making prints. Hmmm....
I found another picture of me in the printmaking room at PSU. This was my second home my last year of college.
Anyway. I got a lot of work done today.
I found this really cool website. Well, I didn't really. Michelle Moode did. I found the link one her blog. It called Art House Co-Op. I signed up for the collecting things project. They send you an accordion file folder and it's your job to fill it with a collection of things that apply to your life. I love to collect things. Anything. Ticket stubs, raffle tickets, stickers, material, yeah. So after you collect your things and put it in the file folder thingy, you send it back to them, and they have a gallery show of all of them. People can look through all the stuff you collected! I almost want to fly to Atlanta just to go through people's file folders. I am slightly obsessed with peeking into other people's lives. When I lived on 23rd in Portland, one of my favorite things to do was go on walks at night hoping for a good peek into someones apartment :)
So Michelle Moode, who is a w e s o m e...signed up, and so did I . And there are more spot available! You can sign up too! Do it! Now! :) Sorry, I am a bit demanding today.
