This artwork representing the Roman Coliseum was handcrafted character by character over the course of roughly 250 hours.
Can’t stop. Won’t stop.
I’ve been steaming my paper! Yes, working on a 2 color job with 1 extra run that’s printed in blind impression… meaning no ink. So in order to get the rather large image to show up crisply on my soft paper, I loosened each sheet up a bit with a little steam from the kettle. As soon as they curled like in the second picture, they returned to the stack. I’ll post pictures of the final product in a few weeks.
The press is all inked up! I love printing in turquoise.
