46/52 I joined a lithography class here in Queretaro. It's the first printmaking studio in the city which makes all the students taking the class "pioneers". I'm very excited about this my first print after 15 years of litho hiatus.
47/52 This year I had the honor to be asked to create a print for a lovely family to give as Christmas presents. It's a big deal for me, to have such a lovely friend sponsor my work makes me want to work even harder. It was a 15 print edition.
48/52 This is a print I was working on over and over. It was first made on wood but it didn't worked out the way I wanted it. Note to self: not every kind of wood is good for xilography.
49/52 After reading The Rizoma by Deluze and Guatari, and having a super nice friend and artist explained it to me in terms of art, I decided to create in a rizomatic way. Easier said than done. It has taking me a lot of effort to stay away from my comfort zone in order to find new imagery. This is the first print I actualy like after lots of drawing, and painting.
And with these 49 prints I come to the end of my challenge. I ended up three prints short. Disappointed?? not at all. I'm very excited where this year has taken me to. I feel I recovered most of the technical part of printmaking. I was able to be very discipline about my studio time.
The plan for 2015 is to create a dialogue, a project that I can work on for the up coming year 2015. Another highlight of this year is that I met some awesome artist friends with whom I get to share, learn and enjoy in this creative process. Life is good!!
