Today I headed back in to the studio to pick up the screenprints from Saturday's print session, and also to print a couple more designs. I brought my mom with me so she could see the process, and she ended up being a great help! Having a helper in the studio greatly speeds up both gathering dry prints from the rack, and the process of moving fresh wet prints from the printing table into the rack. I'd estimate her help meant an hour less of work for me today, and she enjoyed it so much we'll be doing it again soon.

I don't have an accurate count of today's printing, but I believe we made 70-80 cards bearing the Salamander and Figure VII. Saturday's print session yielded 35 Evocation 8x10 prints (see image above) and 35 Jackal cards. Now that they're dry, I will be sorting through them and inspecting each for flaws. Once I've approved them, I'll be scanning in examples of each design on every wood type so they can be listed online. I'll also be packaging the cards with envelopes and instructions for writing on them (use a ball point pen!). The 8 x 10s will be packaged with a bit of cardboard backing to keep them flat and give them some protective cushioning when they're displayed in print racks. I may also frame one to show at Norwescon.

Speaking of Norwescon, I'm waiting for confirmation on my Art in Action schedule (when I'll be demonstrating woodcut) but I do have my panel schedule:
