My Future In Art

Journal Entry: Sun Dec 18, 2011, 9:44 PM
Gallery | Watch Me | Note Me | Facebook

My Mom is always asking me what i will do with my future degree in printmaking. To be honest I do not know, I have not really thought about it. I know it is sad and I should have thought about it before choosing to get the degree. The best thing I could come up with is to work at university and then do commissions on the side. There aren't many options for a professional printmaker other than working at a university or working for a printer because their is not really a market for it anymore. I suppose i could always just do prints and starve to death. For me the prints are not even about the final print but the process, printmaking is just what i enjoy doing im not exceptionally good but i receive joy from doing it. I like the challenge and the uncertainty once the print is placed in acid after all those fine and precise lines were meticulously drawn onto the plate, the hand carving of that pear or pine block with a steady hand until it is perfect, the drawing onto the stone or plate with the litho crayon only to wipe it away and then like magic have it reappear. Its a fairly romanticized way of talking about printing and anyone who has carved that piece of wood will say how fustrating it is but out of that fustration comes something amazing, for every mistake you learn and it makes you a better artist and once in a while a better person. I can not tell you what i will be when i graduate but i can say that i could not think of anything i would like to do more than to become a printmaker.
