sketchbook experiment

Drew a fuax-bronzed bust by Steven Wang shown at the Chet Zar curated Conjoined in 3D show.
Acrylic primed, ballpoint pen (almost half the ink in one), metallic color pencils and sharpie.
The sketchbook didn't take kindly to all that abuse, thus the glare from the paper warping even though I was trying to force it flat against the scanner.

Bearded Jess

So this is what I made for our print swap in Silkscreen class at the end of the year.  The theme was "Circus".  I was super rushed and used the wrong print out for my first layer with a misspelling, didn't notice until I had pulled almost all of them.  I just have to accept that there's so many things that can go wrong in silkscreening that it's almost impossible to get something through without errors.  C'est la vie.
