Just a few sentences and a picture. Most days. Artwork. Humor. Okay, some politics and social commentary. Would you sign up/follow my blog? Today’s monoprint from my Natural History series is “NH: Polar Bear” True or false? We’ll discuss Pliny the Elder later.

Yesterday’s print, “NH Bribery”, was true. HUH!

See more about this series on my website: http://www.hladikvoss.com

Buy in my Etsy shop@ https://www.etsy.com/shop/Printmistress888nhpolar-bears.jpgThe image is 12″x 18″, printed by hand to archival Rives BFK white paper. Frames to 24″x 30″.

Aquatint etching,linocut, trace transfer monotype. Monoprint. Edition 1/1. For sale! Each print background consists of 2, differently colored, inked, aquatinted copper plates printed over each other. This produces the variegated stripes.
Then I employ a variety of printing techniques: linocuts, collograph, etchings, monotyping, chine colle, etc., to create the subject. I design all the fonts by hand.

Here’s the full thesis/premise. I was happily making more and more of these monoprints. It occurred to me that I could make both true and false statements in this series. Let the viewer decide.
And now for the eureka moment. The INTERNET! Pause. Soak that up.
Meant to be a tool that encompasses all knowledge. As did Pliny’s encyclopedia.
Doesn’t. Didn’t. Never will.
But it gives me universal range. I can make a print about anything that strikes my fancy. Which is what I’ve been doing.
