Notice the use of zipper, wool, and masking tape which obviously reflect Captain America’s devotion to liberty, justice, and the American Way! Red ink represents my impatience at standing in line for the blue ink.
I’m real good at artist statements! =D
Edit: This was made using a collograph printmaking technique. I wrapped tinfoil around the template, used a brayer on the tinfoil to get the details showing through, applied ink with another brayer, then ran the template and a sheet of watercolour paper through an antique press. (Sorry! I’m not sure how to answer questions on reblogs!)
oh man, i miss the sound of the brayer in ink with just the right tack. and the smell of fresh ink. code just isn’t the same. ephemeral problem solving. it has its moments. none of them are that one right before you pull the paper off the block (or the mylar off the paper; what can i say, monoprinting appeals to my more chaotic side). it is like opening a high fire kiln - days of waiting, knowing the shape of the thing but not the whole of the thing.
