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?

Intaglio ink relief print of a cassette tape…. the texture of music. I ripped open a cassette, and wanted to capture the texture of another “obsolete” musical device. A reminder that this is what we used to listen to music at one point in time.

i intaglio wiped the parts of the cassette tape, ran it through the press, and this is the beautiful detail and texture i got, simply from the inside of a device we used to use to play music, an obsolete technology that held sound in rolls of tape.

This is part of a series of prints i did, where i took musical devices, dismantled or dissected them, and pulled print images from them.
