Eight weeks ago I was enrolled into the “Water-based Screen” printing at Open Studio. It was my opportunity to recollect everything I had learned the previous summers. Mostly the technical aspects. This was the second run of prints I had done, a self-portrait of my current mood. I have a few prints I’m offering to give away, at no cost. Signed and edition by your truly, my way of saying Thank You, for reading and riding a long with me.
If you want a print email me: email@example.com

We can only predict so much, you know? There is a reason why it’s called human error. We’re not perfectly calculated beings that practice without mistakes. We fail and that’s just what it is, this print being a perfect example. A lot can go wrong when you’re screen printing but there’s beauty to that if you are willing to allow it. Haloing, wonky registrations and uneven printing can become part of the experiment. It forces your vision to shift, to consider a new composition or come across happy accidents that take your piece from good to great. So…trust the process. Whether it’s your personal life or three hours in the studio.
Stay tuned for the final.

I was amnesic after the accident. I only remembered what I wanted to do most: Screen print. Though at the moment it’s the most painful and labour intensive process, I wanted to get back into the swing of things. Accident or not, painful or not, I know now why I love this medium so much. I’ve lived in my own world for the past year and today was the first time I felt…like me (sorta). Just me at the studio. Getting lost in the process…
Keep posted for the final(s) pieces.

This was a starting point of an idea I had regarding censorship and inexpressiveness. People bite their tongues. They choose to keep their feelings inside because of how they will be perceived. Weak, impolite or just plain rude. This special project was from exactly a year ago. It’s absurd how fast time passes by, like what? This was a year ago!?
The whole point of this was to say ‘Fuck It’. These are just adjectives that help us express our mood, thoughts and emotional bruises. Don’t get me wrong, do not use them for the sake of inappropriateness but do feel ok for expressing yourself from time to time.
They are screen printed (1 of 1) on vintage pages of a book I found years ago. The juxtaposition of such delicate and classic photographs sprinkled in with some nasty, bold words and minimalistic illustrations is just ‘oh, so perfect’!
I’m going to continue this project, I have a lot, and by a lot I mean a lot, of steam I need to let out.

Just a quick update on what I’ve been up to lately.
I’m currently working on a new series titled "WTF did you expect?" . I won’t reveal too much at this point. But instead lets talk about how awesome screen printing is & why haven’t I been printing till now? WTF! I think I found my calling. Insert happy tears here.
This, "just accept that you’re too big", is part of mini edition of six.
Want one? Please don’t hesitate to contact me.

You see what had happened was, his arm, sorta-kinda just fell off.
Creepy baby? Not at all.
