Each year I make a commemorative art print for both runners and volunteers. Tonight I completed printing an edition of 120 relief prints. I get giddy thinking about giving them to participants as a way of connecting my love of art to my love of the woods and trail running. The prints are a "thank you" to the runners and volunteers who help make the event possible.
The relief printmaking process is a series of connections. By nature of its multiplicity, images in an edition are intended to be shared. The process of printing relies on connecting ideas and tools to materials:
Inspired by a friend's drawing video, I decided to show some of my printing process. Link to a Sunny Spot and enjoy more interpretations on the Drawing Challenge theme of connections.
