Drawn in the Argos Gallery of Santa Fe:

I drew on this vellum paper for ink jet printers with an Ebony pencil.  Hopefully this will burn into a silk screen, so that I can make a serigraph of this drawing.

I want to convert this drawing into a serigraph and participate in the Weiner Welcome in Houston on April 21st, before their "It Came from the Bayou" print fair, on Sunday, April 22nd.

I'm getting it done at Proper Printshop in El Paso:

Alan, the co-owner of Proper Printshop ,
pulling a test print on March 31st, 2018

First test on brown wrapping paper
(I like the color)

We made several quick prints on newsprint,
which will help to make screens for the colors

Test print on the final good paper

Second screen.  I placed a sheet of OCE vellum on the test print above (of the key color), and outlined certain shapes, then filled them in (April 2nd).  The dark areas will be a different color (probably a dirty dark green) in the final print.

Ready to burn a second screen,
with the vellum above

Dark green test print

One more screen to burn

Taped rectangle,
for underlying red color

Production begins,
April 5th

Production continues,
April 6th

Tri Color, so far

"Aren't You Glad This Print Is Not By You"
Fuzzy final print, but we shifted and double printed the black key color
to give it a noisier feel

Thank you Proper Printshop,
for indulging me, 
and letting me print more punk than proper,
fuzzy edges and all

The print has already been Fed-Exed to Houston, for the Wiener Welcome on April 21st, right before the  "It Came from the Bayou" print extravaganza.

And I collected a lot of nice prints at the 7th annual "It Came from the Bayou" print fair the next day.
