The summer is finally getting started here in NYC and we’ve got all sorts of projects cooking with Blkgrlswurld ZINE. It’s been great getting back into printmaking as a scholarship fellow at the Manhattan Graphics Center- I’m thrilled to be meeting new artists and learning more about the local print community. Printmaking is a tight knit circle nationally and internationally- only so many folks know how to churn a Heidelberg press ok?
Anyways, I’ll try and share here what’s going on in the print shop. I’m focused on silkscreen this summer, hoping to edition some zines, but I’m also planning some press work with chine cole. It’s surreal discovering this printers row of presses, screens and book makers in the heart of Times Square. This city is quirky, I’ll say that much. 😘
Summer events have me running rampant across Manhattan so stay tuned for my take on the NYC Ballet, Juiliard Chamber, System of A Down, From Autumn to Ashes return to NYC, Afro Punk Fest and some other special summer moments.
