Blobby, Figurative Stuff

These are prints, paintings and drawings from my junior year of college. I was searching for a style of my own. I’d discovered a technique called styrofoam reduction printing, and I enjoyed it very much. Essentially, it’s a relief printing technique similar to woodcuts, but using a block of Styrofoam, usually an old meat tray. It doesn’t allow for fine lines, but it is quick and immediate. I especially liked printing wet on wet, so the color would mix on the page, and pull into thick textures.
