From my Intaglio and Relief class with Roberto Mannino. He was such a great teacher and truly hilarious, I miss him now that he's back in Sicily! I had a great time creating monotypes and he liked them, also, which was good.

this is nice its like the moments before the action happens. I am looking forward to my printmaking class this semester also.

Printmaking is so much fun you are going to have a great time! I would say: just be ready with imagery you want to work with because you don't have much time to sit and think about the drawing aspect of things in class. That was my only thing!

yeah I am currently taking the class, and you definitely have to be satisfied with what you are producing because in the end your going to printing quite a few.

and you have to live with some mistakes that you make. Its definitely something that requires effort, you cant half-ass stuff as much. but its really fun.

Yeah, it's definitely a different way to work if you've been drawing all your life haha. Everything (almost) is worth it in the end, though.

It's from an older photograph I took of a friend. It was really strange but it struck me as a good reference

It's so so so enjoyable. I love it because it is as direct as drawing but as permanent as printmaking!
