Four layer letterpress print (featuring wood type, lead type, & photopolymer printing!) // 2013
11" x 15" // Varied Edition of 40. (Printed on a Vandercook Number 4 Press)
 
This poster was a final piece as part of Mary Mashburn's Spring 2013 Dolphin Press Letterpress class. Following the final theme of "transitions," this poster is a transition of layer to layer, text to image, and making work alone to collaborating. 
One of the best parts of this class was receiving copies of everyone's projects throughout the semester.  I've created an asymmetrical collage of elements from a project that each student in my letterpress class has made throughout this semester, getting all of these amazing artworks as gifts inspired me to package these gifts into one poster to give back to my class.

Brooklyn Brownstones & Bodegas
Hand-drawn illustration, Two layer photopolymer letterpress print // 2013
15" x 8" // Edition of 30 // MICA Dolphin House Sheet (Printed on a Vandercook 320G)

My submission to the Brooklyn Industries 2013 Community T-Shirt Design Contest, wish me luck!
My design embraces the brownstones and bodegas of Brooklyn. This aerial view lets you appreciate each unique stoop and neighbor, with a touch of hand-lettering waving from the rooftops.

Dim Sum Skyline
Hand-drawn illustration, two layer photopolymer letterpress print // 2013
5" x 6" // Edition of 40 // Chipboard/300lb Hot & Cold Press Watercolor paper (Printed on a Vandercook Universal)

A postcard about home and place. Dim sum mornings in New York City's Chinatown are a big part of "home" for me. The towering containers mimic the towering buildings in NYC. The back of the card features a tall glass of bubble tea to wash it all down!
