I think pink…

handmade stamps

Today was my first time leading the creative meeting at work. I wanted to share some printmaking techniques, but my co-worker Jim did screen printing a couple months ago and I wasn’t sure what other medium I could do without having an accessible press, chemicals, or risking slivers. So stamps. I like that I could teach them about relief and it was easy to carve and ink up to use quickly. I did the Fluid logo (middle) and the ampersand. I’m pretty impressed with the others since it was everyone’s first time carving anything. And no one stabbed themselves or their neighbor with tools, which was my biggest fear the whole time.

It felt so good to be carving. Almost too good.
