The epic tale of the University of Wisconsin LaCrosse Printmaking Program. The Printmaking program is directed by Joel Elgin and features the odd collection of the many PrintFools who enroll, print and exist from semester to semester in the Shop of Tears.

Judgement Day and the upcoming exhibit


Judge JElliot "judges" the PrintFools. Many things were learned, many truths were revealed and many printmakers lost a little fear of authority.

BrassAss is sentenced to life in Hell

find the judge 1

find the judge 2, find some smartasses as well

Exhibit News!
Step 1: Create your own blog site (if you have one go to step 2). Since you already have a sign -in this easy - just make your template and follow the directions. Its easy and free.


Step 2: Upload to your blog a high quality digital image of one of your etchings or lithos from this semester

Step 3: Include the title and a brief explanation of the image. Remember that social work, unlike personal work, benefits from a description because the description adds further information.

Step 4: Post the address of your blog on this post as a comment this week or next so I can upload your image and text to the exhibit page. Do this by
December 4, 2009.


Exhibit will open December 10, 2009
The complete exhibit will have one of your images, your blog address so more images could be looked at, and your written description. Check the past years exhibits to get an idea of what ours will be:


Hey Alumni who might be lurking!
Work due via email: December 4, 2009

Email your image/etc to Becca if you are in the first half of the alphabet, send to Maggie if you are in the last half:
Becca DeLapp (blogBitch) (delapp.rebe@gmail.com)
Maggie Lach [lach.magg@live.com]


Just found out that our own ZoeBrown ran her little butt of this weekend. She timed at 24:26! She told me she did it for us (well, me, I think), carrying Printshop Pride every running step of the way.

I hope everyone has an amazing Thanksgiving break! Eat a lot and catch up on sleep to get ready for the craziest weeks in the print shop!

Maddy Grimmer said...

I can't pick which picture to put up....and its taking me forever to decide on a template...sigh. But yes, have a great break everyone!

Sarah said...

Excited for the exhibition! Joel- you removed me from the list of current printmakers...

profJ said...

Oooooooops sorry Moped. I had a computer concussion while messing with the list.

Lisa Ulik said...

Can't wait to see all the new blogs!

Zoe Browne... you are one amazing printmaking, teaching, running woman! Congrats on a great run;)

Jumpy said...

It is time for the exhibition already! I am scared and should shed tears as my time in the shop is nearing to an end, and very little to show for it dammit. I will have to shed more blood sweat and tears than ever before if I am going to get this to work. It isn't fun having to spend most of my time in lesser classes. And by the way good job Zoe Browne!

Jaime said...

I can't believe how fast this semester is going ahh time to get to work. BTW I may need some help setting up my blog because I am kinda computer challenged...

Great job on your run Zoe I am guessing that was for the Turkey trot? Ya beat me by like 10 mins lol

Olivia said...

I realized that my blog has been sadly neglected, it was from back in my baby days and really needs to be updated. Have no fear printmaking friends, I am very computer challenged and if I figured out how to make a blog you all will be just fine!

Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday. It is about family, friends and delicious food what more could you ask for, and it doesn't carry all the stress of getting the right presents. Be safe driving home, I want you all to return to the print shop!

chels said...

Damn i cant believe i missed the judge and wed class.. there goes perfect attendance! sigh

Yay Zoe!! you are pretty amazing one you are!

Toni said...

Blog.. aye aye, cap'ain.
A bit saddened I didn't get to see the judge. It may have put my mind at ease about what goes through those crazy lawful dudes. Uggggh, so much to do, so little time. I've already cut sleeping down to like 4 hours, what more can I do!! Grah.

Cedarose said...

I am glad that we are making blogs and am looking forward to it.

Mingo said...

Britt Vogt said...

Allison Bauer said...

I am excited to see everyone's blog. I think this online exhibit will be great. Sad that I missed the judge but heard good stories. Have a great break everyoe!

Jessalyn said...

have a wonderful thanksgiving break everyone! and congrats Zoe

Joanne said...

congrats Zoë Browne!!
hope everyone stuffs themselves with turkey or the vegetarian equivalent this thanksgiving.
i'm excited about this blog business, but that also means i have to get working!!

Ali said...

I have a blog up and running- but I want to wait until one of my prints from my final series is finished to upload it. Hopefully I'll finish one before break.

Nate S said...

sweeet! I'm excited! I've always ment to make an art blog, site...whatever. Finally something is going to make me do it! I'm excited. Hopefully I can finish my print i'm working on. I'd like to put that one up.

zoe said...

That is really nice of all of you to congratulate me! I am sorry to say that that was actually a really awful and slow race... Kind of a bummer for my last collegiate cross country race, but no worries, I had a great season and ran much faster than that at other races =)

Also, have a really great thanksgiving! I will be eating more than all of you, I can almost guarantee it. I think for a fun experiment we should all weigh ourselves before eating, and then right after eating .. pre poop of course.. then post how much weight we gained during dinner.

Mark K said...

Hope everyone has an awesome break. Gotta get cracking on the blog and some more prints before the semester ends.

TonY Vang said...

Ben Clark said...

I'm definitely looking forward to the exhibit pages! Please, don't judge a lowly scientist too harshly...

Not sure if you're taking the information from the blog and adding it to the online exhibition, or if you want me to email Becca like we've done in past years (the instructions you gave seem to suggest both) but if you're pulling it off my personal blog, the very first image (of Ben's headstone) along with the explanation written below it is the one I want in the exhibition. Let me know if I should be e-mailing Becca instead... I'm really confused :(
