diggin' the devils my homeboy artemio is cutting into wood. Makes me truly feel all of the shame that I deserve for being such a slacker shit piece. at least i got a tasty woodcut done this weekend that I think will serve as repent, and my homeboy artemio probably forgives me.

Laura Mead said...

I feel like this Artemio guy may have influenced previous printfools in the shop... Lots of skull work. I like the morbidity of it though! My chore dedication has been stellar this semester, so I'll just focus on that rather than my devastating shortcomings..

Olivia Kennedy said...

I'm so ashamed. I will repent of my sins and so my best to make it right. This my comment here.

BabyEater said...

I have repented, now I am free. Just in time for Easter, and the weeks before I lose my mine. The different depictions of the devil in Rodriguez’s prints have great lines and remind me of the impending doom that is, graduation.

Megan Danahy said...

I am soo sorry! Please forgive me!?!?!

Carrie Hilson said...

Been busy but gaining back my print fever, and excited about my new series ;D

Dewayne Wrencher said...

True...

Aspyn said...

Have to hit up the Hail Mary's for not bringing in my frame today.

Those prints are so full of attitude!

Allecia Kruser said...

Thanks ogre

Paige Weier said...

Slack I have not, Repentiest Ogre! But these woodcuts are phenomenal. I really enjoy Rodriguez's heavy line, and his humor. Dark like the pit of my soul.

Emily said...

I give Artemio credit for sticking through THAT print with a linocut!

Kyle Stokes said...

We're not worthy, Ogre. Now I gotta dig deep into my soul (and the blog) to see what I've missed. And, damn, those are some fantastic relief cuts.

Lauren Keesler said...

The lines create awesome movement in Artemio's linocut!! Also, Im looking forward to a summer of print making:)

andrew musil said...

I have been reading, but not commenting. I'd rather be printing. and sinning.

Andrea Anderson said...

Amen, Alchemy!

But I repent.

I fell down a rabbit hole looking at Artemio's woodcuts, so look for more relief from me reeeeeal soon.

Nhouchee Yang said...

Yup I have to agree with Andrew. But yeah those woodcuts be sweeeeet.

Maura Haselman said...

The seven deadly sins series by Artemio Rodregas remind me of my vice series I did in intaglio... I swear I've dreamt about the las trumpetas de apocolips print... That horse haunts me

Chloe Pittelko said...

I also have been reading but not commenting. Time to dig in. I have, however, been doing my chore! Damn hot plate Hell.
Diggin these prints, nice to see some linocuts. The lack of negative space in No Rest for the Wicked is very nice.

The weak can never forgive. Forgiveness is the attribute of the strong.

I have definitely been sinning in the laziness department! Time to finish the semester with a bang and repent!
