Finally finish my senior project. 7 prints (three black-white, three red-black, one pink-black), a match box and a little black book.
I printed my three plates with black ink and red ink. Ms. Cross and Brianna really helped me a lot. They were with me in the HS art room after school for so many days and helped me solve many problems.
Done with the third plate. All I need to do after the winter break is to print all my three plates with red and black.
I almost finish carving my third plate and I may complete it before the winter break. Recording to Ms. Cross suggestion, I decided to do a little black book which has several prints from the three plates. As I have already done a tiny match box that has a couple of mini prints in advanced studio art class, I will be confident to do the little black book later.
After I came back to school, I began to carve my third plate. I felt like this would be my best one because I have done two already and I have gotten some ideas.
Finish carving my second woodblock.
This week, I talked to Ms. Lichtenstein (faculty grader) about the idea of my project.
Start to carve on my second wood block.
I have been worked on my first block for 3 three weeks and it was finished today. Brianna will help me print it out after school so that I could see the final product and add more details if I need to. By the way, I also got my woodblocks last week.
I chose tribal arts as the theme of my project. I get to start to sketch some drafts for my prints in this week. Also, since i did not find any woodblocks that I would like to use, I plan to order them in Chinese website. It may takes a few days to mail.
I talked to My mentor Ms. Jennifer Cross about my senior project today. And I got some ideas which can be put on my process book. The only thing I need to do now is to choose a specific theme and order the materials(woodblock) by next Monday.
