Sold I framed this little guy to bring to the Sierra Madre Art Fair this weekend. (If you’re near Los Angeles, CA, swing by and say hello.) He’s small and cute, and he fits nicely with some of the other petite printmaking art I’ll have hanging in my booth. The process shots for this silk aquatint are below, but if you need more details to try making one, you might look at this post, or search this blog for the word aquatint to see more of my experiments with this excellent, non-toxic printmaking method. I have some bigger format ideas to try this summer, and I can’t wait to get started. 🙂 See you in Sierra Madre!
