in the group crit with the printmakers i felt a bit funny about the comments about the previous ink drawings. they were positive comments but the work seemed to be more creditable because of the more expensive paper and the rich tones the ink makes. it kind of contradicted the way in which i work a little (in some weird way). it bothered me. so i wanted to try them on cheaper paper, which would buckle up a bit and see how they turned out. i did a couple on newsprint paper and then a couple on sugar paper. i was really happy with the results. i will do more of them to see what they look like in a larger number. i may cut out the newsprint ones. i like the fragility.
