Donuts Are Like Viewfinders, Lithographic print, 18"x10"
Lithography, Spring (March) 2014
______Here we have my second lithographic print! I'm enjoying formulating personalities for my made-up creatures, these being rather loop-like and possessing some sick hovering abilities. Now we've got sea croissants and land donuts. Next up? A biological pastry critter that holds dominion over the sky. I ain't even playin'.
______I actually had a different image before this one, but it ended up sucking up so much ink when I was preparing it for printing that turned into a ginormous black blob--my professor jokingly named it, "Black Bears in a Black Forest at Midnight." Holding back my manly tears, I sheepishly grained the black blob away from my litho stone and moved on to bigger and better things. Like dancing donut critters.
______Somehow, I flawlessly pulled all six of these prints from the press with finesse. I think the lithography gods felt bad for me and let me print without repercussion this time around. Maybe the inky blob stone was actually some kind of sacrifice needed to print properly. Who knows.
______I posted my success to Facebook, and mi professora saw them and shared them to her wall, thus making my soul happier than a friendly fern in a friendly farm of ferns. That was just as difficult to type as it was to read.
