Oh Hello Intaglio

I love etching! I first discovered this type of printmaking during my 5th (and most fruitful!) year of undergrad with Michael Krueger's intaglio class. Then I became a graphic designer and didn't make any prints for many years. I was reunited with printmaking again in grad school when I audited Bruce Waldman's intaglio class at SVA. And then, once again, work and photoshop took over and I didn't make any prints for about 4 years. Then this spring I got the itch! I had a fever and the only solution was more etching. I signed up for Amanda Maciuba's intaglio class at the Lawrence Arts Center. It was such a great experience. Amanda had an answer for my MULTITUDE of questions. Seriously, this girl is an encyclopedia. The LAC facilities are AWESOME. I highly recommend a class there if you ever get the chance. In fact, I just signed up for another. Silkscreen coming late spring 2016. 

This is the main result of this session's class. I've been working on some projects that are taking some major brain power, so for this class I wanted to turn it all off and just make a print of my cat, dammit. So I did. I was even able to make a small edition. I put a few of the prints up in my shop if you are interested in one. 

Love Affair.

Spring seems to finally be on the horizon here in New York and I feel as though my love affair with Central Park will soon reach epic levels. Winter can be tough here, but it can also be beautiful. I was inspired by a snowy day back in January. I have plans to make several more prints of these snowy scenes. As always, stay tuned.
