turned this one into my business card
Today I did some simple monoprints. On blue paper, I used only the inking brayer to find the textures I craved. Then I used a thoughtlessly carved linoleum block as the impetus for an exciting pattern.
These were produced by rolling a large tube along a styrene sheet strewn with blobs of paint, then rolling the paint covered tube onto paper. The first two have further embellishments, the rest are unadulterated.
Inktober is an annual daily endurance practice experiment involving ink.
Here are some of the things I made this month.
