Sketching ideas

Working on some sketches for things I'd like to print, and this is one of my favorites. The theme for the print show I'm going to be in is death, so I'm combining this with my usual focus on human communication and bonds. What can I say? I'm a pretty pessimistic person lately.

"I will always be angry, I will always be persistent, I will always seek to drag you down to my level."

The Trials of Printmaking

So yesterday I started printing for the first time! Super excited! My friend Jason Le helped me etch my first zinc plate, so here it is. Haven't tried too much actual printing with it yet, just did one test print. I'm just going to keep practicing until it turns out just right. I'm really enjoying the process thus far, so I'm looking forward to learning how to do more.

"I Don't Make That Face!" in the works

A painting of a friend I am currently working on. It's about 75% done, so I still have quite a bit to do, but most of the complicated things are done. Should be able to finish this by the end of the week if everything works out. I am super excited because this week I am also going to start learning how to make prints! I'll be sure to post my newest art exploration as soon as I can!

The Cynic

Since I haven't updated in a while, I thought I'd post one of my finished pieces from this semester. It's a portrait of my younger brother, hope you guys like it!
