this is my new box. i used some really awesome modern paper. i think it was made in india, but i'm not sure. i really liked the flower pattern, and tried to repeat that in the layered part. in person, the layers are a bit further apart than they appear in this photo. the monkey is an old tin game piece. i have had him for years, looking for just the right place to put him. he is holding a little white cup in his hand, which i think is funny. it's about 6" square and about 1" deep. check out the sk3tchbook website for a side angle view.
i took a great class last weekend at a gallery in pagosa springs, CO. it was taught by a printmaker and potter named michael coffee. the class was amazing. we made monoprints with a process called "reduction ink". the great part was you could get all of these grey tones that registered without multiple plates. i will be taking the class that adds color in july. sooooo cooool!
