Invisible Eyes

I want to see the world without the world seeing me.
And this is the other print done during Nuit Blanche.

Despite the fact that we closed up shop early due to the wind and rain (and then at the same time as we were cleaning up someone pulled the fire alarm in the school)
I had a great time, and managed to pull some pretty decent prints despite everything. It was quite nice having applause every time we pulled a print, but also very jarring (for me at least) having an audience while printing.
I’ll post my prints next.

Progress! 
I started the drawing thinking i was going to have to erase it all and start again, but luckily due to lazyness and emotional attatchment I kept on working it and its (for the most part) coming along well. The nose and the mickey mouse hand are unfourtunate though.

Working on a new project.

I used india ink before carving for thr first time (so i could actually SEE what im doing) and it has changed my life.

Working on my biggest print yet! (24” by 49” ish) its going to be printed at nuit blanche ottawa’s steamroller printing event.

Reduced a bit, and decided to gradient instead of doing another reduction.

Working on my first reduction print. And colour! It’s not so bad.

You have to be brave enough to decide to be an artist but also you have to be in a community that pushes you.

Shots from the vernissage of PUSH at studiosixtysix (Muriel St, just behind the apartment building at Bronson and Holmwood), featuring work from Guillermo’s Ottawa School of Art print class.  On until June 26th, definitely check it out for the craft, the ideas, the playfulness, the chance to see what’s in store from Ottawa’s newest generation of print makers.

Thanks goodthingsottawa

Productive monday. Old navy had a sale on basic tees/tanks so i stocked up (felt bad for the cashier though) I love when you ink up your print fot the first time and you get to see all the hard work pay off.
