Subject: Mystique series #11~12 : work begins
Posted by: Dave Bull

Can't afford any more 'playtime' with the new video camera just now - it's time to get down to work on the next pair of prints!

There is going to be a bit of an interruption during the making of this pair. I'll be making a quick trip to Canada during the last week of February. It looks like our annual family 'reunion' won't be happening until the autumn this year, and there is no way I want to wait that long before seeing the parents/kids/grand-kids again. It'll be just for a week, but it will fall in the middle of work on these prints, so I'll be rigging the registration marks on the blocks in such a way that I can print just the 'outside' print first, then do the other one when I get back.

Anyway, we'll see more about that as we go along. For now, first job is to get the tracings ready. #12 is going to be a reproduction of a Meiji-era reproduction of an Edo-era surimono print. Actually, that's the same kind of process that I used for print #7, the Hokusai insect and moon; that too was taken from a Meiji reproduction. This one isn't Hokusai - it's one of his pupils, Gakutei.

This design uses the relatively rare technique of kime-dashi. This is related to the more common karazuri (embossing), but they are produced in quite a different fashion. More about this later, of course.

I have my own copy of this print, . . .

PPLD Off the Wall: February 2011 from PPLD TV on Vimeo. Oh. My. Late this afternoon I received an email from Ralph Giordano at ArchAngel Productions with an ominous link. Yup. To the premiere of "my" segment for the PPLD TV short program "Off the Wall." I made the Darling Man come and stand next to me when I clicked PLAY. It's probably an understatement to say that I, um, dislike having my
