Post Project Discussion: Printmakers Gone Wild!


A new project has been announced in the WetCanvas! project system!

Title: Printmakers Gone Wild!
Project Leader: JenZ
Relative Difficulty: Irrelevant
Type Restrictions: Original Print
Medium: Other
Subject: Not Applicable
Days open for signups: 30
Maximum participants allowed: 20

Description:

This is a Nature/ Landscape/ Environmental/Wilderness themed Project for Printmakers! Relief, Intaglio, or Lithography- handprinted or press printed. Have fun and "go wild" (get it?)!


Type of prints accepted are any hand-pulled editioned printmaking methods (intaglio, relief,etching, mezzotint, etc.). The paper size will be 8"x10" for all prints. The printed image may use the entire sheet (bleed) or may make the image any size or orientation as long as the image is on the required paper size. The edition size is 20 though printmakers may make a larger edition for themselves. The deadline for prints mailed to the coordinator is 31 July 2009. The coordinator will collate the prints and return them to the participants by 15 August 2009. Participants are responsible for sending their prints to the coordinator and making arrangements with the coordinator for postage for the returned collated sets.


Additional Information:

Remember, in order to help keep the discussions on projects organized, you should post your questions, suggestions, and comments on submitted work here in this thread. By doing this, we allow other non-project efforts to not get "pushed down" by a swarm of project-related threads.

I'm in, too. I was at the Bosque de Apache National Wildlife Refuge (New Mexico) a few months ago, got some great photos, and have been wanting to do from that... This is the perfect opportunity!!! Yeah!!!

Re: Project Discussion: Printmakers Gone Wild!

Have a question first as I am little confused when I clicked on the link to the sign up page...is everyone working on an interpretation of the posted reference photo only for this project or can we do our own thing?

if there is freedom of choice then the timing for this new project couldn't have been more perfect since just began work on a multiple colour print which is to be used as an demostration example of creating a wilderness landscape. This is for a classroom based printmaking project that starts next week.
The interesting thing is the master (key) block is being cut from a softoleum surface and the background colours will originate from mounted scratchfoam surfaces.
Anyhow thinking since I will have the blocks might as well print a few up and can contribute to this swap. Will post some of the early stages in the progress folder found in the project page.

I think the photo is there to dress the place up. No reference photo's are mentioned in the descriptor. And, I for one, will be absolutely excited to receive on of your landscapes, Brian!

Re: Project Discussion: Printmakers Gone Wild!

thanks Curtis
I kinda figured it was whatever suited our fancy (but doesn't hurt to ask just be clear)
in the meantime I signed up and have posted 2 early progress images based on a composition from my own reference material

Yes, definitely... do your own thing, whether landscape, animals, etc. as long as it fits the title! I'm revved for this exchange, great theme and some newbies and old-bies signing up!

Re: Project Discussion: Printmakers Gone Wild!

I'm signed up. I may have to go out of my comfort zone and do a landscape instead of my usual animals. I had already been thinking about trying landscapes so this gives me the perfect excuse!

Re: Project Discussion: Printmakers Gone Wild!

Yes, the icon I posted on the Project page was a photo I took this past weekend in Weedsport, NY (northern Finger Lakes region)--I put it there just to make the page a bit more exciting. There is no required reference photo for the project- whatever floats your boat!

I am so excited about this... and the prospect of getting 20 nature-themed prints to hang in my house!!! Hee hee.
