The International Print Center in New York city has an excellent program with guest curators and twice a year shows of new prints. The shows showcase so much talent and beautiful work, every time. This print by Elizabeth Farrell, one of the artists featured in the "New Prints" autumn show is created with the pochoir method.
Pochoir is a stencil based graphic process that creates an exact, crisp edge to color areas.

Bookbinding: inspired by Emma Gunnarssons artists book in the NyGrafik exhibit, I had a bookbinding class with book binder Shemah Hassan this month.
As we worked, I had a lot of ideas for projects with book binding techniques. We created a bound back for my board game imagery. The structural prototype: a scrabble game board.

Pebble board. That is what it used to be called. An old technology product used for creating halftones, No one even knows what it is anymore, it is no longer a paper product. Until....I found pebble plastic film in Screentec's catalogue. It's Swedish name: Rasterfolie medelgrov.

Jury member and guest curator Thomas Liljenberg
This month: the NYGRAFIK 2014 exhibit at Husby Konsthall. Observing the jury work and watching the process of making their decisions has been both a valuable education and fascinating. We experimented with an online application program, hanging with clips, without passepartout, and an online return mailing service.

I am always amazed by the work I see in museums and at exhibitions. I think the artist Sean Caulfield creates intriguing prints that explore machines, nature and sometimes fuses machine and nature into fantastical objects that seem to belong in both yet neither realm:


Sean Caulfield

I think he would really like this picture of the Stockholm telephone towerm (to the left).It was called "telefontornet", telephone tower, and was once the exchange structure for telephone lines.
