This is what my summer has been like in a nutshell. Hot and sweaty printing litho in Brooklyn, and getting real intimate with pulpy paper pulp in midtown.
Went to Bushwick open studios today; apparently Brooklyn is the place to be these days.
First attempt at Coptic binding, unassisted (except for YouTube) and I only got a little bit of blood on one of the pages! Success!
and with that, I am officially done with my Junior year. yikes.

Hard ground, aquatint, sugar lift and chine-collé
I added red to Vine black to create a really beautiful almost purple color, but I think the scanner just doesn’t see that color. This is what happens when a printmaker is too used to thinking backwards; when making a chiné-colle template, they forget two negatives make a positive.
