Testing Halftones

I have never done a color halftone screenprint before. I had old instructions from when I took screenprinting in 2001 or 2002, but those didn't even work with Photoshop I needed to test it. I used a picture of Ernie to test it, and I think it is pretty fun. I am really loving the art of these color halftones...there is something magical about the process, putting one color down and then another until you get the whole image. Additionally, I think the look is really quite appealing and the quality is perfect for what I want to use it for...there is this fine art meets industry, handmade meets technology, and probably best of all, past meets present.

Art Auction Now through April 30

I last wrote about the auction to benefit the Farmington Public Schools in Connecticut, and I think I posted the wrong link. Click here for the correct one.

Prices are very reasonable and there are some wonderful and unique items. Some are local to the Hartford area, but many can be used and enjoyed anywhere! You can even bid on my work!

Thank you for your support!

Art Auction to Benefit Farmington Public Schools

Please stop by and see some of my artwork at the online auction to benefit the Farmington Public Schools in Farmington, Connecticut. (That's where I went to school!) Auction runs from March 15th through April 30, but you can preview online starting today! Along with my work, there is other wonderful artwork by current students, art teachers, alum, and professional artists, as well as many exciting other items/services to bid on.

P.S. That little logo in the left corner is also a donation I made to the foundation. Yep! That's my work there!

Discard 2009: Now Up-To-Date!

So I have been a slacker on this, but I figure as long as I get rid of 365 items, it should be ok! I've decided to put no information (except eventually the date) unless people want to guess. First and foremost I want to get rid of the items and document them! Clearly you can see that the documentation has been most efficient and sucessful as photos, but that doesn't mean there won't be a drawing or collage once in a while.

You can see these images up close and personal on my Picasa site. I'm still working out some technical difficulties (such as: how do I get the file name to be the caption?) but for now you can enjoy looking.
