Collaborating with Andy making a crazy HUGE print!
So RMCAD is hosting a Steamrolling Printmaking event that will take place on April 23rd. Its called Steamrolling because we won't be using a press but a piece of machinery commonly known as a steamroller! Our block (it will be a wood block print) is 3 feet by 8 feet! I'm designing the image and sketching it out and Andy will be doing most of the carving (he has the tools). Sadly he is out of town until Thursday so he will have about a week to complete the carving! We are looking at it as an experiment this year since we have such a limited amount of time to work on the block. We will get a feel for it this year and then start working on our block for next year!
The concept for our block is taken from some of my doodles. The idea of a book and the imagination that comes out of them. I'm also using images from Alphonse Mucha and Gustave Klimt as inspiration and reference material... mostly for formating.
