Sketch for Beatrice's Birthmark series

Sketch for Beatrice's Birthmark series

Two days ago we had our first picnic up on the Overlook and today woke to snow on the ground and more coming down. I keep  laughing because it seems odd and dream-like. This is a “sketch” (in collage) for one of the main images in the Beatrice’s Birthmark series. The final illustrations had to be trimmed down to three colors in order to be able to screenprint them  – by hand. But I still love the sketches as much as the finals. Happy snow day, everyone!

Oh, here is the final illustration on a greeting card. They sell these over at L2 Design Collective, by the way.

I am so stoked to report that I coated my first screens in my rinky-dink, basement darkroom this afternoon. The boy is asleep and it’s snowing and the time seemed right to mix up the photo-emulsion and get to it. Hopefully this portends an avalanche of inspiration and printing!

A great friend came by today with her girl and a box of cinnamon rolls. We spent a couple of hours watching the kids try each other on for size. She asked me to do an assemblage piece for her brother’s 40th birthday. It is so great to be asked to create something “for the man who has everything.” Thank you for your support!

Off to enjoy the snow.
