Miz Beulah Fowler and Miz Ruthie Wyandotte, 13 x 10.5″ each, mixed media on Rives BFK Tan paper. I posted Beulah when I finished her; now she has a friend. And today I begin work on my 2016 calendar: Chickens of Distinction. Oh – and I have no idea what breed Beulah is; her owners didn’t know either. Can anyone here help me ID her?

Had our third doodle date at the local coffee-and-cake-ball shop, Brew Ha Ha! Painted with some of our coffee. The printmaking paper (Rives BFK) that we used actually kept the normally-waterproof ink from drying and staying put…. so there were some smudges D: Matt used that to his advantage though, and he was able to get some grays into his drawing!

Matt’s is on the top, mine’s on the bottom. :3


anonymous asked:

hey! how do you do your prints? what's the paper?

Depends on the print! I do almost all of my risograph printing on various French Paper Co. papers. I love their Speckletone line! Their stuff is so great for riso printing, highly recommended! For screen printing I either use vellum bristol or Arches BFK Rives printmaking paper.
