I’m still here!

I'm still here!

Wow, painfully remiss as usual with keeping things updated. I have been busy with finals for this semesters, as well as an annual juried exhibition at Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, applying for internships and just making art. So here is a little update, of an animal drawing session. Soon I will get a picture of the final piece!

Screen printing

imageHere is my first screenprint. These are only the first few colors, but I wanted to post something, since I have been absent from this blog for so long. A lot of unexpected things came up, and then I was very sick with the flu.
I’m enjoying screen printing a lot, however I am not so good with registering by tape bar yet. And that tiny fraction of an inch where the registration doesn’t meet kills me! Hopefully with time I will improve on it.

Monotypes

Monotypes

Last semester I made a lot of monotypes on the subject of hyenas. Hyenas are my favorite animal, and I wanted to make a body of work on the same subject. They sold very well at the print sale, surprising to me since hyenas are not usually the most popular of animals.
This one is a ghost print which was reined partially and then collaged during printing.

Adventures in lithography

Adventures in lithography

Here is the first lithograph I draw and printed. It’s certainly not fabulous and I had no idea whatsoever how the etches were working at all. After a semester of litho it’s a little less confusing, but I still need a lot of time to figure it out.

Lucky Elephant

Lucky Elephant

The annual student print sale at The Pennsylvania Academy of fine art income up on December sixth, and this is one of the little prints i will have for sale there. I have a lot of new work in different mediums which I’ve had the opportunity to experiment with, all within the category of printmaking. Some of them are nice and some of them are not, but I had a great time making them.

These embossments are for sale in a limited edition, any inquiries can be sent to mlwebbfineart@gmail.com

Installation in Rittenhouse park

Installation in Rittenhouse park

Recently I did an installation in Rittenhouse square at the fountain. Here is a photo from it. Definitely an experience to work in public and interact with people seeing the project come up and be brought down.

Studies in perspective

Studies in perspective

I have been thinking a lot about exploiting space in my drawings this semester. I think maybe one of the easiest and hardest ways to do this is to try and use perspective and structure effectively. So that is what I have been focusing on in any extended drawings.

Also, today is my birthday!

Recycled materials

Recycled materials

Lately there has been an emphasis on creating things from recycled materials. I like this idea a lot, since so much goes to waste by just being thrown away.
For this project I wanted to explore integrating something organic with something man made, which I think has started to happen nicely through the weaving of the reeds.
