Monotype in process

Here's my monotype plate on the press just after printing. Unlike editioned prints like etchings, solar plates, or lithographs, each monotype is unique. That's why they're numbered 1/1.

The first number is the number of that print, the second number is the size of the edition, so a print numbered 2/5 would be the second print in an edition of five.

Here's another of the monotypes I did at the artist residency at Sparkbox Studio. The really exciting thing is that I've come home with a clear plan for the next series. I'll start posting those soon - I've been doing prep work since I got home and now I plan to start printing in the next few days.


Monotypes at Sparkbox Studio in Ontario

I've just returned from a weeklong artist residency at Sparkbox Studio in Picton, Ontario. It was a fabulous time, but a week was way too short. My goal was to do one good print a day for a week and come home with seven finished pieces. Once I was there, I got on a roll and came home with 15 monotypes that I'm really happy with. Here's one....


Lamecia and her puppet!

Lamecia escapes the humdrum of daily routine by running off with a motorcyclist!  Vrooom!  Vrooom!  His bike is complete with ape hangers.  Go Lamecia, go!  (He's just a bit on the short side but oh well).
