This is from "art camp" at my grand aunt's house We made many, many ink prints using glass and ink and stuff. This was my favorite one. I gave it to her as a gift because she let me stay at her house for 10 days I have more of these, some are more complex.. Should I upload them?

I'm proud to be part of the Topo Copy Expo - Risografia project, organised by El Topo and Sam Scarpulla, that opened the DOK area in Gent. A fantastic party place in the docklands where all kinds of artists go wild in empty factory buildings and even a newly built arena.
They asked a bunch of talented people ( amongst them Ephameron, Jan Van Der Veken, Zosen, Thierry Jaspart, Mark Goss, .. ) to make a 2 color-print and this is my addition to the risograph series. It's for sale and limited to a series of 100 signed prints.
We did it Johnson, we've indeed discovered a new world!
Finally I get to post this here! This is an etching I did a couple of months ago during our graphics course, the theme I chose was "Dreamworlds". Since I had to use the etching and aquatint techniques for this piece, I thought it'd be cool give it a kind of Jules Verne 19th century fantasy feeling to it, I also took a lot of inspiration from the Spyro the Dragon series. I was originally going to have the englishmen fly a steampunk styled blimp airship, but I lacked the skills, time and patience required to pull it off. I also printed some variations of the same scene as we could only use two colors for this assigment (1 color per copper plate). I was originally going to post the second variation (my original vision of this piece), as a stand alone image alongside this deviation, but once I had put them together like this, I thought they worked so well together that the stand alone picture would be overshadowed by this compilation.
Oh well, enjoy, and feedback is always greatly appreciated!

I also want to thank all the people who commented and favourited this piece!
There's this bridge I cross every day I go to school. Water flows under it in a very peculiar way, forming moving whirlpools next to surfaces that almost look too flat and still to be water. It's difficult to describe. Whenever I have some time I stop to just look at the water for a while. At some point it came to me that this flowing water had much in common with thoughts: more or less transparent, consistent yet unpredictable, unstoppable. Those thoughts ultimately shaped the outcome of this work. Unfortunately I'm still very new to lithographs and had some problems with printing this. Lots of very subtle tones didn't transfer from the stone at all. Practice practice practice.
Edit: I've added a photo of the stone to my scrapbook, take a look
