Two weeks into the new year all ready. I've been sidelined from printing by the Muse. I'm working on my trunk novel. But when I get back to printerly things, I want to tackle monoprints again.
I've looked into Akua inks lately and I think I can do some viscosity prints with them. My favorite! Last time I looked at Akua I wasn't impressed, but I am now. I got some inks for xmas and I'll pick up a few more supplies and see what I can do. 8-]

The actual booth. Pretty much followed the layout. Sold Air Kraken on the last day. Yay! Need to get the person's contact info so I can send the provenance.
Need to quit selling the art off my walls tho. At least make sure I keep an Air Kraken, as it's a reduction block!

Choosing prints for the Loscon 40 Art Show this weekend.
Not carved in stone (or wood either, for that matter), but a possible selection. Santa Paws in the upper left isn't matted & framed yet, but that's what it's going to look like.
Our bed makes a great place to lay out art. My booth space is 4'x6', but art can hang down a bit from the bottom of the pegboard, so I can squeeze the art in. But it's tight, and they all do need bid sheets.
I only included one other xmas print: Midwinter Night. I'm wondering if I should include Snowflakes are Dancing from last year's xmas card? It's another large one, so it would take up the space of 2 or 3 smaller ones. I'll think about it.
There are always other prints I could choose ~ that's the amazing thing about having a collection. There are a couple prints I'd like to hang, but I need to frame them up again, and I don't think I'll take the time right now.

Scanned in at 300 dpi and sized to 600 in preparation for making the xmas card on vistaprint. Need to massage the black in the dog bodies, but otherwise I like the look. Even the slightly toasty tops of the dog biscuits for Santa. ;-> Shows it's hand made.
Same image at sized to 800. Don't see much of an improvement.
Bill uploaded the full size image to vistaprint and sized it to card shape.
