For my final printmaking credit before I graduate (to complete my concentration), I am taking a book/paper making class. And who knew making books and paper could be so much fun?! Definitely a craft that I am glad to have learned while still at MICA. And for our main project for the semester, we're each making an artist book. I have decided to create an Edward Gorey inspired alphabet book of strange girls. The plan thus far is to lithograph the illustrations and letterpress the text. It's going to be a lot of work, but I'm excited. Here are examples of sketches that I'm working with:

Here's an illustration I did for Center Stage's Young Playwrights Festival - where students all over Maryland are allowed to submit their own play to be produced by Center Stage. This is a call for entries poster with room left for the information to be inserted. My concept here was to simply inspire the imaginations of young people with a fantastical scene. I'm assuming we'll find out whose poster was chosen in class tomorrow. Even if my poster wasn't chosen, this was still a fun piece to make.
