Gelli Plate Printmaking


One reason I've neglected this blog recently is that I have been immersed in Gelli Plate printmaking.  This is the world's easiest, most addictive way to make monoprints. The process is extremely versatile and lends itself to the use of found objects, as well as stencils, image transfers, and direct mark-making.  Here are a few of the zillions of Gelli Plate prints I've been churning out.

Drawing the Democrats


Eliabeth Warren
Joe Biden
Kamala Harris
Pete Buttigieg
Amy Klobuchar
Andrew Yang
Beto O'Rorke
Bernie Sanders
Cory Booker
Last night's debate featured ten Democrat candidates.  I managed to draw nine, missing only Juan Castro (regrettable, but I just couldn't seem to make it work).  These drawings were all done "live," from the candidates' moving images as they talked.  The drawings are a little more like caricatures than serious portraits.  I think some are more successful than others--for example, I like the Warren and Harris drawings, but think the Biden and Booker drawings miss the mark.  Anyway, a fun exercise.  The drawings, top to bottom, are Elizabeth Warren, Joe Biden, Kamala Harris, Pete Buttigieg, Amy Klobuchar, Andrew Yang, Beto O'Rorke, Bernie Sanders, and Cory Booker.
