Vintage: Project from College Printing Class!

I had to take a printmaking class in college. While I found some of the projects fascinating and enjoyable, it was often excruciating, because for each exam, we had to turn in a certain number of prints of the current assignment as exactly alike as possible. The teacher also had a very obvious clique of little favorites from previous classes and it was really nauseating to watch him giggle with them as if they were all 12.

If there is anything I cannot stand, it is cliques–groups of people that seem to live to show you how cool they are, how much fun they’re having, how exclusive their club is,and what a loser you are because you aren’t part of their group.

Still,I made it through with some neat projects. This is a woodcut, and as you can clearly see I used nail heads to decorate the backs of these two lizards. I also had to work the design around the knot in the wood.
