La Luna Mariposa
Last Thursday Joe Segura and Alan Larkin printed up the orange layer for the Mariposa print in preparation for the demo at IUSB. Friday Joe and Alan etched the black plate and printed over the orange base they had printed the day before.
During some of the drying times Joe showed examples of prints his publishing company, Segura Publishing Company, has printed. I showed a few of my relief prints and talked about the ideas that lead up to the image for “Luna Mariposa.” We had a pretty good turnout and the students asked good questions about collaboration, techniques, inspiration, and shop safety.
I’m pretty happy with the results. I still have to go back to edition and sign the prints before they are available for purchase.
