Litho work from last semester

Here's all the lithos I printed. Most of them are for sale, so go to the For Sale tab at the top of the page and check them out!

These were my first four lithos. The 1st and 3rd were the first states and then we had to go back in to our images on the stones and do a deletion and an addition.

These were next. We could do anything we wanted to do on our personal stones, so I went with this. I had come up with these architectural pieces after I made some of my digital work and I wanted to make them look more real by putting them in an environment and adding shading.

Up next was a collaboration with a class mate. I collaborated with Ashley Bellinger and we created these prints. These are a small edition, so get them while you still can!

The next project was printing a litho on top of a digital print. The colored background is the digital part and the architecture is the litho. I have smaller digital prints of these for sale on here and my facebook for a steal! They come in packs, so you get all 3.

This is one of my favorite pieces I made last semester. It is based on the city of Ersilia from the book Invisible Cities by Italo Calvino.

This was me trying my hand at colored lithography. Not my favorite piece.

This was my final litho project. I made a crystal city and printed the buildings as a litho. I then went in (the night before they were due haha) and hand colored the back ground with watercolor and watercolor pencil.

Catching up... In the easiest way possible.

I say it just about every time I post something... It's been a while since I posted something and I'm trying to be better about it. Well, it's true, but it will most likely continue to happen due to seriously busy schedule of classes. But I've decided to put up a few posts to show all the work I missed from before the start of this semester. Feel free to comment and ask me any questions about this work.

Here's some glass work from last summer:

This was a mosaic I spent about 3 of the 4 weeks working on. It was based on a doily pattern and I only used Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, and Black to mimic a CMYK silkscreen print. I used little glass tubes called stringers to make long seed bead shaped pieces and I set them up on their ends to mimic the bitmap dot pattern used in CMYK prints. I wish I could say it still looks like the bottom picture, but there was a freak slumping accident and now it has two folds and a couple cracks on the back side.

 I also did some work with glass frit when I finished my mosaic. The top piece was a CMYK colored stencil piece and the bottom two were made with painted on frit, or powdered glass. The bottom one is what the final piece looks like.

These were made by putting frit directly on a kiln shelf. The one on the top was what it looked like before it was fired and the bottom one is after being fired.

This is the last glass piece I made before the class ended. I took the reactive clear and stenciled the doily pattern on top. This glass reacts to certain colors of blue frit put on top, which you can kind of see. I then slumped it over a vase stand and got this jelly fish form.

There was all the glass stuff I made last time. Keep checking here to see some of the stuff I am working on now in my glass class.
