Blog Changes

Messing around with the layout again, let me know please if things look odd and if the header is too hard to read :)

3 Hours Later....

And onto the part I am dreading messing up. The wing feathers, a couple dozen maybe?

Decided to show an image of the plate over the photo so people will get a better idea of how I work when etching and see exactly how many feathers I have to etch. The black paper makes it easier to see details in bright light on the plate.

There are some people who might argue that all I am doing is tracing and its not really art when I etch these birds; but I take the photos that I use and have to decide what to leave and what to include in the etching so the print will look right. I think its still art, technically it is dry point work, not traditional etching, but acid and me are probably not a good mix with my shaky hands lol

Throwback Thursday

Mom, Danielle, and me in 1984. And the lovely blue patterned couch makes another appearance. It's in a few other photos, moved around house to house and honestly it wasn't that comfortable to sit on :p

Too Many Choices

Having a hard time deciding on the layout for this word. There is the simple just laid out how its spelt...,

jumbled up...,

or tall like a tree :p Leaning towards the last one, but not sure if its too cheesy or too arty for a design module.


Someone is 5 today :p
