Tamales – block print

Right now, I’m doing a lot of printmaking in my studio:

tamales

The design is from my recent residency in Oaxaca, MX. These two women sold tamales in the street. Their tamales are delicious, and they let me practice speaking spanish while I ate. They have been selling tamales on that corner for 15 years.

I thought they would look good in red.

I’m hungry just looking at the finished print.

You can watch the process (friday december 4, 2015 from noon-5) at the EAT gallery in Maysville, KY.
If you can’t make it for that: I’m having an open house Saturday and Sunday in Old Washington for their Frontier Christmas Celebration.

And if you would like to try it yourself, I am teaching a 4 hour workshop at the Baker Hunt Art and Culture Center in Covington, KY December 12th.

Visit my calendar for details.

If you are interested in the artwork I created while in Oaxaca, MX, you can see more by visiting the “Mexico” section of my gallery

Thirsty

Last week, I spent a week as the ‘Artist In Residence’ at Longbranch Elementary School. Their art program works with a non-profit organization, called Faith 2 Move, to incorporate global awareness into their curriculum. I collaborated with 850 students to make this video about water. Enjoy!
