Desaturate: Reconstructed North American Fauna

This summer my friend Damon Locks, visual artist and musician (the Eternals) asked myself and 5 other artists (Jay Ryan, Derrick Buisch, Ethan D'Ercole, John Hitchcock, Dan Wang, and of course, Mr. Locks) to create a series of Black and White screenprints that would be shown under the exhibition "Desaturate"
I had been wanting to make some Black and White screenprints for a while, so the chance was finally there in the form of this invitation. I chose 5 North American Animals that have both historical importance and are important figures in Native American Folklore and Mythology.
The prints are more intimate in scale, Paper size is 12" x 12", the imagery is centered nicely in about a 6 inch area on the paper.
I have made both individual prints and the entire set ( bound in a limited handmade portfolio) available in my Etsy shop.

Deadwood Print show at MPAC, Aesthetic Apparatus

I was asked by my good friend Dan Ibarra of Aesthetic Apparatus to contribute a print based on the HBO series Deadwood for a show/portfolio exchange with 19 other artists at their HQ during the MPAC conference this week in Minneapolis. I chose a scene from the end of episode 2 Season 1, where Calamity Jane is singing 'Row your Boat " to a newly orphaned Norwegian girl. The print is called "Life is But a Dream". It is 15 x 22 inches and is 3 colors , the second being a transparent ghostly silver that is not that evident in this photo.

The print is available now in my Etsy shop!
