So, four days after I finished Route 66 I hopped on the road for Vermillion, SD for Frogman’s printmaking conference. The conference consists of about 150 printmakers, ranging from undergrad students to well versed professionals. Each class is taught by someone in a specific field of printmaking. I am taking a class in digital printmaking. My class is taught by Lanore Thomas (from Satan’s Camero) and Jason Ruhl (from Scavengers). Their work is a great marriage of digital and traditional printmaking. I have a learned a lot from them.

The other grad students that go to University of Tulsa are taking a class in 3-D Relief Printing and performance art. Their class is taught by a guy named Dennis McNett (from WolfBat Studios). His work is mostly relief prints, and revolves around specific animals that have different meanings to him. The class built their own animal masks out of cardboard and masking tape, which were then covered with relief prints from the class (which were mostly woodcuts). The creature they built in the end, was then filled with fireworks, and lit on fire at a cook-out we had tonight. These are the photos of the demise of said structure.

If you want to see more photos, please go to my flickr. (such as the making of of the creature and/or masks)


If you haven’t checked out the videos we shot while out on the route, check them out here.
