Traditional printmaking techniques have always stood out to me but I really latched onto woodblock carvings. During this semester I kept with an old pirate/skull/sailing theme. It went hand in hand with the summer line of 2013 for VAUX. This print was later turned into a screenprint for crewneck sweatshirts and denim vests. A short video feature opens up a very personal insight of the whole process from sourcing the apparel to printing and wearing the garment.

This 5 color suicide block was carved out of one block insuring you have perfect registration every time. My fine art tends to express how I think about design and understand how I come across an idea. This print is meant to represent the corners of my mind. I enjoy the challenge in using traditional printmaking techniques to achieve something that is taken for granted with today’s technology in printing. There’s something rewarding about pulling a perfect print with clean sharp lines and registration.

This piece was about the design process and ideation of just dumping everything out in order to gain some traction. Visual brain dumping to me has been a extremely important skill Ive learned through design and printmaking. I’ve opened so many different doors just by writing down every idea possible.
