Here's the drawing I'm working on for this week's Illustration Friday prompt. I'm going to finish it up with some watercolor and get it on to the IF site tomorrow---hopefully. I've been busy this weekend with a couple of printmaking projects. I'm trying to print some Christmas cards from a Solar Plate I made Friday night, as well as another relief print. I also bought a cool "Gelli" plate that is supposed to work like a gelatin plate when doing monoprints. It's made from a rubbery material infused with mineral oil, that can be used over and over. I bought some monoprint inks too. I can't wait to experiment with it!
I am an art teacher who loves to draw and paint, as well as illustrate for children. I also enjoy printmaking---especially block prints. Whatever I do as an artist, I have to remind myself---no pressure---it all starts by just putting pencil to paper.
