Hey guys!

This is my drawing of the moon I did for my printmaking class which was later used to create a lithographic print (seen below).

This piece is 14 x 21 inches drawn in pencil and black conte.

Here is the lithographic print of the moon drawing.

First I re-did the drawing on dry-brush Mylar which is a see-through, plastic like surface, then exposed it onto a lithograph plate as seen below.  Then I printed it on white drawing paper as seen in the print above, and also in an edition of 3 on Sommerset paper to hand in for my class.

I think it turned out nicely!  On Sommerset they were a bit lighter, apparently I didn’t quite ink them enough but man is it a lot of work!

Also some exciting news…  my drawing was exhibited at the UBC Irving K. Barber Learning Centre as part of an exhibit held by the Carl Sagan Association!   It was interdisciplinary exhibit and my work was shown alongside tools and artifacts from Astronomy and other departments.

The exhibit is called An Inescapable Perspective and combines art and science faculties, bringing them into discussion with one another.  It’s a great thing to be a part of!

Thanks for checking out my work everyone, have a great day.

Cheers,

Julie
