It’s spring break week at the college where I teach, so I’m kicking my magazine work into overdrive between phone calls and emails from students who are still reporting stories during break. (FYI: There’s no such thing as spring break for diehard journalists in training.)
CraftSanity Issue 9 is shaping up to be a fun one! Let me know if you would have a last-minute spring project idea to contribute as I may be able to squeeze in another project. And if you would like to like to advertise, there’s still time for that, too. The rates are posted here.
I plan to cover printmaking in the next issue because it has become my latest obsession. Today I made some prints of a block I finished carving yesterday. The detail shot is posted above. I’m thinking it would be nice to buy or make a heavy duty press at some point, but I haven’t sorted all that out yet. What I do know is that I really enjoy the mystery and magic of printmaking and so I will continue carving and printing and printing some more. The process is slow without a press, but still very enjoyable.
There’s a lot of work to get through this week, but it’s all really fun and for that reality I’m truly grateful.
