Gestation, Color Separation, and Monotypes

Woooah big update. I finally scanned a few of my BIG prints. Unfortunately, even though I scanned them in sections and pieced them together in Photoshop, they are slightly cropped because there was just no way to fit all the missing edges onto the scanner.

"Gestation" measures 18"x24" and is printed on cream paper in an edition of 5, with 3 additional unique color prints outside the edition (two printed à la poupée, one with stenciled surface rolls).

Today I was super productive and printed my entire multi-plate color edition in one day! I didn't think it could happen, but it did. I just couldn't stop. The prints have to dry overnight but I'm going to check them out tomorrow, clean them up, and sign them. Still need to think of a clever title. But here are my final color separations.

And here is a little kitty...I call him "Le Petit Chat Sur Le Grand Fauteuil":

I've also been working on my Monotype project. Here are two of my favorites:

That's all for now. More soon! In the coming weeks I'll be adding many new prints to my Etsy shop.

  1. Whoa! Big update indeed! First, good job on "Gestation" It came out nice in color. In the edition print the baby parts and the background seem mixed. As for a clever title for the smoking cat in chair: "Boots off in the study, please." Ha! That poor innocent sleeping cat looks like he's in trouble with those dark specter floating around it. "first fish fishhook five" from your monotype project sounds like it could be the name of a band. Great work.
