Some New Prints

Here are some new prints that I made this week. They are 12" x 7", and are a mixture of linocut, collagraph, and monoprint:

I made the central columnar shape on the top print by rolling ink on a piece of acetate, then scraping lines into it with q-tips and a Starbucks coffee stirrer. I then took a ghost print off that same piece of acetate onto the bottom print (a ghost print is when you use the remaining traces of ink on a surface to make a faint, 'ghostly' offset onto another piece of paper).

Here are some more collagraph plates I'm preparing, using coils of string, sewing thread, and a mixture of carborundum and etching resist:
