In my printmaking class I learned the art of printing and making amazing various works. I especially enjoyed black and white monotype, where one paints with black ink on plexiglass. Later on in the class I was able to print a black and white monotype on t shirts, which was really fun and the best part of class for me.


Here are some t-shirts I made for my friends. I took pictures of them and traced their faces onto the plexiglass to create the cartoonish style of it. I used monotype for these.  -Joanna

Julian DuFour - greyscale monotypes

using mylar sheets, hand cut designs can be placed onto an inked sheet of glass/plexiglass to reveal paper creating a negative design.

mixing oil-based inks with thinners and solvents can create softer greys and allow for more fluid application creating more gestural images.

this piece was created by inking found materials, inspired by mark rothko's paintings. 
printing stations are bound to get messy, clean up and preparation of our workspaces make up a sizable fraction of the process.

Joanna Herz - Monotype Prints

Hi, my name is Joanna Herz. These are the monotype prints that I did.

Here are some additional monotype prints that I did:

All of these were based off and inspired by a podcast show known as "Welcome To Nightvale" created by Joseph Fink and Jeffrey Cranor.

My name is Shanee, and in class my peers and i made dry points. To make a dry point you have to sketch a picture and then execute it by taking a needle and scratching your picture into a metal plate. Below are my sketches and prints.
