Hi Bareners--
Things seem a little quiet around here lately. I hope it's because we are all working so diligently on our prints for Exchange 50. Just a reminder that the delivery deadline for your 101 tiny prints for Exchange 50 is right around the corner on November 1st. While we're at it, here's another reminder--Sign-ups for Exchange 51 are open. We are about half-full on participants. With only about two and a half weeks left, we could really use a bunch more of you to jump in and take part. It's open theme and Oban size.
Be sure to check out the Galleries to see images from past exchanges! We have a collection of fantastic work there! And special thanks goes out to Maria Arango for helping keep the gallery updated. Cutting away...Kristine

Subject: Beetle and Proof
Posted by: Andrew Stone

This showed up in the driveway today.

I think it showed up to check on my work as I was proofing yesterday.

I think it is still a Prionus beetle but I am not sure.
It lacks the little spikes on the thorax that are quite prominent on P. Californicus.
But doesn't resemble the more common, local P. Coriarius beetle either.

This is a quick proof of my beetle print (tube watercolors/rice paste and sumi).

Subject: Wood Engraving

So graduate school is in full swing over here in Tennessee. I got a chance to try wood engraving for the first time! It is a very different experience. Instead of carving areas, you create your image with line and you work on end grain wood. Which mean the wood grain runs perpendicular to the carving surface so there is none of the chipping or splintering you usually have to deal with when you work a wood block. And as an extra special bonus, end grain engraving blocks just happen to be type high so you can print them on the letterpress. :D Anyhow this is my first engraving, so it’s not perfect or anything but I love the medium so I will definitely carve some more.
