Roussau Walks

These are pictures from the next set of prints made with Emily Joyce. This represents the beginning layers of the print-- a grid of eyes. The whole surface will then be completely covered with a web of leaf shapes.
You can get a sneak peak of what will happen with the leaf shapes ontop from the vinyl version in the background
Look at the great faces that happen in the printing process!

These are images that get made on the side to get me started printing. Some great accidental compositions!

Wedding Shower Invitations

It was hard to imagine what I would do to make my  own wedding invitations...given loads of references and printing options...really, an overwhelming task! Litho? Screenprint? Relief? Etching? Letterpress? What I did know, was that this would have to be a close collaboration with my soon-to-be, David Lomeli. Here is what we came up with for the shower invitations:

The illustration was done by David, laser cut out of card stock and mounted onto cream Rives BFK
The letterpress printing was done using a photo polymer plate
all was bundled together in a curry colored envelope
 Our thank-yous
