The Moon – Lithograph Print

I made my drawing of the Moon into a lithograph print!

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 original Moon drawing as seen here is going to be exhibited at the UBC Irving K. Barber Learning Centre as part of an exhibit held by the Carl Sagan Association!   It’s an interdisciplinary exhibit and my work will be shown alongside tools and artifacts from Astronomy and other departments.  It will be there for all of November, and I’m quite happy that my work was chosen to be part of it!

I’ve already started on my next print project so I will share that once it’s all finished.

Anyways, I hope you enjoy my print!

Oh, and Happy Halloween!

Cheers,
