This is a collection of letterpress pieces that I made. I love the ability to craft something with my hands, its an art that has been lost as we loose ourselves in the expansion of digital art. There is something magical about stamping a delicious piece of paper with a block of wood or plate to create something. I took letterpress to another level by creating with my designs. I created a found poetry book that folds out and opens into the shape of a heart with the message, LOVE LIFE. I worked with clear gloss to create a tint/transparency with the colors. On the second piece I took a picture of an atomic bomb testing my father took in Guam and created a pointillism plate to create an ombre effect on the paper. I the third piece I create a triptych of eggs by spray painting 3 stages of the egg and running the paper through the letterpress after. Lastly i created a blind embossed and pastel graduation announcment card.
