|'Kitsch Kittens' ed. 30, relief.|
Images of each run for the edition 'Kitsch Kittens,' printed for Melody Vaughan's (MTSU) 'Worst Portfolio Ever.' The idea was born from the overuse/misuse of certain images by beginning printmakers. From the list of banned images, I chose kittens and hearts. I always told myself (mostly joking) that after graduate school I would produce lots of cat art and use plenty of glitter. That day has finally come and my pets Lola, Mia & Clementine are now forever immortalized. You can see Lola in the above right photograph, watching over the drying rack as I printed the key last week. I used MDF and carved reductively, 5 runs total, printed on a tabletop Nolan. Looking forward to seeing what everyone else came up with for the exchange portfolio!
