Drawn at the New Mexico Art League in Albuquerque:




I had proofs made at New Grounds Print Workshop in Albuquerque, from 2 laser cuts. My drawing was laser cut into the wood, by Heat Sync Labs, in the first woodblock print:


In the second proof, the laser at FabLabAbq cut away all the area around the figure drawing, leaving a raised line, and thus making an inverse of the above image:


After converting a scan of a newsprint drawing, we sent a vector image to the laser cutter. The prints came out better than I expected, but there is still a lot of artistic work that needs to be done to bring the image up to par with traditional handcut woodblock prints.

Last Wednesday the Heatsync folks burned one of my drawings into wood using the laser cutter at Gangplank in Chandler:



The Phoenix area has a lot of Hacker and co-working spaces, which might help push art into the 21st century:
