TWIP: Printmaking final

Here are some photos I took while working on my Printmaking final. I'll post images from all of my finals as soon as I shoot them and find a card reader. :]

TWIA: FINALS! And other things.

Lots of finals due next week, so I'll be spending most of my weekend in the studio. Well, except Saturday night, because that will be dedicated to dressing like a badass zombie killer and celebrating my awesome roommate's day of birth.

Anyway, for my printmaking final, I have two prints due. One is the experimental process proof I've been working on all semester. I'm going to add some texture to Oogie Boogie. Other than that, it's pretty much done.

The other is a three-color reductive woodblock print of Batwoman. Here's a peek at the first layer and the beginning of the carving process for the second layer.

I'm also working on my paper final, which will be a collection based on my tattoos. I'm going to do several sets of hands with stitched "palm tattoos." They will be sewn together in pairs and mounted like butterflies. I'm also doing three life-size replicas of my chest and neck tattoos. All of them will be covered in wax to give them a "preserved skin" feel.

Also, I have some shots of my last paper project. It was an installation project based around using different drying and casting methods to make 3D paper. I made a surreal landscape/cityscape out of forms cast from recycled bottles, boxes and cans. Here is a crappy phone pic of the whole thing followed by some not as crappy close up shots of some of the individual pieces.

TWIP: Thanksgiving

Friendsgiving with former roommates, current roommates and good friends. Thanksgiving with my parents and my mom's new obsession with Wii Bowling.
