Week 11 Reflection

working on book: 16 hours
printing: 15 hours
drawing on print: 2.5 hours
photographing pastel drawings: 1 hour
preassembly of prints: 1 hour

I finished coloring this print at the beginning of the week. I'm really happy with the color, but as Erica and I were talking about today, I'm not sure how I feel about the drawing style/texture. I've drawn the last few prints tighter and heavier than previous ones. Although I like it, I kind of miss seeing more print show through. So, I'm not sure how I am going to approach the rest of the prints.

I've been working on my poetry book all week, as well, and I'm almost ready to order it. I can't wait to see it printed.

I also did a lot of printing this week, and I cut myself off now so that I can spend the rest of my time assembling, drawing, and figuring out what will be in the show.

  1. chrissy,
    we need to put all, or most of the prints up on the larger wall to address your question of tighter versus more print showing. i really like the tonal color in this latest print, but will have to see it in relation to the others to speak about your question. if possible i would like you to get your prints up on the wall before class starts this tuesday so we can start right off looking at them and then move on to other people.can you do that? i'm excited about your book and want to look at that tuesday as well.
