What I did on summer vacation…

Photogravure…that’s what (see detail at left). I took a couple of courses at the Cleveland Institute of Art. One was about photogravure and, boy howdy, it was fun. We learned an updated version of the method which included just a few steps. At first I was a little nervous about all the steps but after the first print I was feeling pretty confident. If you enjoy printmaking and want to incorporate photos into your work I would certainly encourage you to try this out. The teacher was very clear and accommodating and the other students were fun. You can check out my novice attempts below.
