As previously documented, I’m stuck on block printing. It seems to be a make that’s stuck–I keep trying new things, experimenting, and envisioning new blocks.
Here’s a small block I made of a circle with an x through it. I played with light to dark colors here, with a mix in between. I’m actually quite pleased with the result and want to print it again, on a larger scale or a different color cotton. Dark fabric, light print would be amazing.
Eventually, I’m thinking of turning these into little zip cases for notions and other bits and bobs you carry around in your purse. What do you think?
I’ve been working on a First 100 Days sketchbook as a way to address my pent up anger and to try and put this time, and these feelings, into my artwork and express.
I recently made a #nodapl block print–an issue extremely close to me as a Native American. It should be an issue important to all Native Americans. This is my sketchbook reaction to recent news that the pipeline easement would be granted.
This is one of my latest block prints that’s got me thinking and wanting to print it everywhere. It just needs fabric.
I tested it in my First 1oo Days sketchbook, which is a project I am working on to help me process and make art as part of my creative resistance. I call this one “Which way?”
What kinds of things are you doing? Making?
