Monday will hopefully be an exciting day since we get to show others what goes on in the printing shop. Also I really enjoyed Daumier's prints. I found most of them amusing. It is also nice to know how to sharper the wood cut tools.

I was just wondering the other day if it were possible to print without a press. The video answered that for me. Good timing!

It was awesome to see how you can print without a press. I never knew how that would work out and how you could have the same outcome as well. But I like that guy's mustache from the video!

How the heck does Daumier get his lithographs to look like paintings?? His lines are soft and indicative. Especially one of them that looks like a page from a children's book. (this one: http://www.daumier-register.org/werkview.php?key=3 )
WHAT. Show me how.

The T-shirt day was so incredibly fun! I loved showing others our wonderful world of printmaking! I also love that video of how to sharpen the tools, so cool!

Printing on shirts got me excited for creative imperatives! Knowing that this is what the babies did last year right before, allowed me to experience both the behind the scenes action, and the excitement I had the very first time I was in the print shop. My very first memory in the shop was the one thing that brought me back again and again.

It was another joy to see your post. It is such an important topic and ignored by so many, even professionals. I thank you to help making people more aware of possible issues. Great stuff as usual...
