Saturday was the culmination of a giant printing project that started two months ago. I printed the zebra with a fantastic group of artists and the organizers of Big Ink at the Whiteaker Print Studio in Eugene.
I have forgotten how incredible printmakers are because it’s been years since being involved with any projects. I missed that support and energy. Lyell and Carand are an extraordinary team, working hard each day with all those blocks of creativity. I also enjoyed meeting Jessica Billey, another local artist and Big Ink participant, who needed a ride to the event. I fell in love with her image 💕. It involved sheep, a tree, barn and incredible clouds. It spoke of the area we live in.
So this particular journey has ended but I think I’ll continue dipping back into the world of block prints. My press is ready for some action! I just have to get cracking.
Thanks for watching the process. If you want to see more, please check my Instagram account @gale.everett.studio
