Today I learned from a student about #letterboxing and I’m so excited to try it out myself! My student is from my hometown area #sarasotaflorida and has traveled all over and brought 3 sketchbooks full of what she has collected from letterboxing. So cool! •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• #hunt #treasure #printmaking #stamps #reliefprint

Finally finished carving my bigger version of the Dahlia block. It’s about 20x24 inches so it takes up nearly a whole sheet of paper and barely fits through the press, but it’s lookin real nice 😁 can’t wait to print more of them!

This print that I made for school is an assignment based on responding to a classic work of literature in a way that relates to modern times. For my assignment I chose the Grapes of Wrath as my book, and related it to the search of paradise and the journey to a better land of opportunities, specifically the Cuban migration across the sea. In 1994 this phenomenon started where entire Cuban families where told that they were free to leave Cuba un any means they could. U.S.A told them that if they reached American soil, they'd be welcomed, so entire hoards of people made rafts in their backyards and put their entire families in them and sailed across. Needless to say, out of more than 100,000 people, less than half made it to the other side. It was one of the most disgusting and indirect forms of genocide in modern times. Today, even though the law changed, there are Cubans still arriving in the same conditions, Nd there are some still dying in the ocean. My father is one of the many people who made it. He told me his story and I couldn't believe it. The visions his mates had of building in the ocean and islands that weren't there, or the storms that had waves the height of 5-storie buildings, or the moment where they saw bodies half-eaten by sharks floating around them. My piece is a scene of a family sailing across. The girl lost her teddy bear, which represents her innocence. There are sharks in the water, the lurking danger, and the adults on board look like they have had enough. There's a heavy cloud approaching too... I hope to show the world how awful Cuban Socialism is, and what it drives its citizens to do to achieve a better life, or die trying. --__--__--__--__--__--__--__--__--__--__--__--__-
