Takach brayer.


For quite some time I've been worried about post-graduation printmaking. It's something that I love to do and yet, with the exception of some woodcarving tools, I don't have any of the tools and materials to do any of it. I've been pretty content to use the school's supplies, complaining the whole time when another student wouldn't take care of or clean the community supplies. Having now graduated I find myself in a bit of a pickle. But thanks to my amazing in-laws, I am now one step closer to home-printmaking. As a graduation present they pulled out all the stops and bought me a brayer. Not just any brayer but the queen-mother of all brayers, a 4-inch Takach Brayer. I can't find the words to express how excited I am about this. Now I just need to sell a couple prints so I can buy some ink and paper and figure out how to hand-print so I can take advantage of said brayer.

I'm finally convinced that marriage is a good thing...more family, more presents.

She's always changing her mind.

Yay for the expensive lint roller.
I know my easel (gift) is/was one of the most indispensable (but out of my budget) supplies to my post-school painting. Gifts are great.

felicidades hermano! Oh the prints I envision you making now...

We need to really get together and plan our little show you mentioned. I'd like to get it rolling so it happens sooner than later.
