Devils in my closet

Devil Block Print

Devil Block Print

Check these out! I forgot I had them, this was my first wood block attempt. I basically inked the block and then jumped up and down on the sidewalk to press it to the paper. I still don’t have a press… But jumping works all the same.

I still have some left if you would like one.

What is brass photo etching?

I burn an image into a brass plate using ferric chloride acid. It’s the same stuff used to etch circuit boards. HOW DO I DO IT?! Well, I’m afraid it’s a trade secret… But I can say all of the supplies can be bought at RadioShack! I’m sure if you wanted to do it hard enough you could figure it out… I did.

Brass Photo Etching Sample

Look at his arm, I have no control over where the mistakes happen. I actually feel it’s what gives the brass etching it’s charm. If you are looking for a perfect art, this is not for you.

New Bonneville Riders Forum Shirt

NewBonnevilleRiders.com is a web forum I use daily. I designed this shirt to be sold, to raise money to keep the forum open.

Love & Hate

All February I had art showing at the Everybody Get Up gallery in Alameda CA. Specifically a series of brass etched vintage horror monsters.

Rather than talk about it, ill just show you some pictures.

The show ruled, opening night was packed. EGU will have more shows soon, check back here for information about those.

Thanks for visiting.

Thanks for stopping by! It’s a large internet and I realize you have a lot of choices and a lot of other sites you could be visiting… so thanks! Thanks for stopping here.
