Tomorrow I'll be visiting my old high school and talking with students in the applied design course about letterpress printing. I'm really looking forward to sharing my story and my work with the kids. I only hope they find the process and products just as interesting as I do!
When my previous high school art teacher asked me to come to the school to talk to his students, I was more than happy. I wished that I had been introduced to printmaking earlier than when I discovered it on my own. So even if it only resonates with one student, I'll be excited.
Above are some photos of personal stationery I made for my former teacher. I used some vintage architectural drawings for the liners. Aside from teaching he's also a fine artist. And every fine artist could use some custom cards.
