Also, I've been helping out in the print room in UAA (University of Alaska Anchorage). The Tutor there has been really very generous and allows me use of the facilities in return for a very small amount of work - testing products, preparing stuff for lessons and making samples of techniques for students, as well as answering the odd question. It has the added benefit of putting me under a small amount of pressure to create prints and drawings of my own.
I've been a bit lax on posting...as always, but I've been trying to keep working and this is what I've come up with lately. It is very early days but I am trying to work on more landscape based forms in an effort to create a context for some of my more abstract forms. However, these have also become a little more abstract than I would have liked. Perhaps I don't want to commit to anything too figurative. I'll keep working on it though. So here are some drawings and (mostly) corresponding etching/aquatint/dry points.
