More Struwwelpeter printing process

Since the transparencies have been coming out spotty, I’ve been painting them in with india ink. It works really well and I prefer it to the Super Black markers because the markers tend to sticky and cling to the screen, leaving residue behind.

TEN x TEN: Collaboration between Artists & Musicians

Ten Chicago printmakers chose their favorite Chicago musical artists and bands to each record an original song for a compilation. Each printmaker will create a 10″ x 10″, 3-color print inspired by the song they commissioned. The final package will feature a suite of ten fine art prints and a ten song compilation of exclusive tracks.
