New Work, and Printing for Punishment

New Work, and Printing for Punishment

Apologies for the long delay. The past two weeks have been pretty hectic. Aside from conducting workshops with the Academy and plugging my class with Sharon Art Studio, I’m also planning for my Open Studio that occurs in three weeks. It’s a lot of work, and I feel like I’m spinning my wheels. I’ve managed to create new and awesome business cards (each is more like a limited edition print than business card), and at the same time, I royally fubard the postcards for my Open Studio.

Honestly, I got a little in over my head with trying to custom print everything. I’ve been stubborn to the point of being stupid. I really don’t like print companies because my images are almost always two values off, but I should have sucked it up and used one this time. Custom printing works beautifully, but not on larger prints, at the required volume. Not with my printer, anyway.

I guess this is a lesson learned (I still like the idea though, so maybe not). Stay tuned for more Open Studio adventures; I’m sure I’ll have several to share soon.

Finally, I also updated with a new sketch for 09/30/08. So there’s a nice little goody for your patience.
