SGCI (Southern Graphics Council International) Conference was so much fun. I got to use my little Poco Press for the first time to create a series of prints about the Nevada Test Site for the SGCI member print exchange. The print is called "That One Line from the Bhagavad Gita" and has a crater shape for each of the one hundred above-ground atomic bomb tests conducted at the Nevada Test Site between 1952-1962.
Some of my highlights from the conference: LOVE the way mezzotint looks but have never actually done it myself, so it was awesome to see that demo. The fact that it was held in Las Vegas this year was interesting because I was able to see the way that artists interact with my hometown and the varied interpretations of the city. Oh, and I bought a print of Pee Wee Herman holding snakes in front of a burning pet shop from Little Friends of Printmaking, which is probably my favorite scene in a movie ever.
