Last night I had the pleasure of assisting Greg Luckeroth in printing his fantastic new woodblock. See him here pulling his print with Andy Rubin (hidden to the right) of Tandem Press. Many thanks to the master printers and directors of Tandem.

Been busy applying for jobs and setting up a piece for the Student Show at the Porter Butts Gallery. It was juried by Warrington Colescott! This is the Back of my Show Card for my MFA Thesis. Posting an image of the progress on the new piece later tonight.
