Mariachi de Malaguas

NEW PRINT!...kinda. Originally, I completed it as a digital piece (YUCK) for an in-school assignment;but, as usual, I wasn't fulfilled come the final. Mostly because my heart is with printmaking, not the computer. Super psyched about my mastery of printing transparent colors and gradients in this piece...okay, just kidding...mastery has yet to come!

...although, this is the most delicious gradient I've printed to date. Its a good day when the gods of printmaking are on your side! :)

I also finished a second print which is a combination of the pieces I illustrated for the short story, Laura's House, for the recently printed issue of Instigatorzine, but I didn't want to piece it together digitally with the baby scanner I had to use for the print please bear with me!

In other news, I've finally freed myself from the grips of lethargy and submitted a piece to the annual Postcards from the Edge show...which I'm reeeeally excited about! Its for an amazing cause and has a fun twist to it; its all anonymous...unless you purchase the postcard! For a pretty inexpensive amount (and, in effect, donating to a good cause) you could have yourself the art of some extraordinaire out there!

Keeping in line with the theme of the show, I won't reveal mine til after January 8th when the show comes down, but I will tell you that its titled Eye Keep Losing All My Teeth and Friends. Hope you can make it out to any of the three showings!

This will probably be my last post for the year! WHUUUT!? I hope you all have an awesome holiday filled with all your faves and the best times to ring in the new year. Hope you'll stick around for the adventures in 2011!!
