UNTITLED (CARRIE WITH FLOWERS) A four color screen print with hand drawn elements (pink).  Collaboration with Linda S. Price (aka “wifey”).  This print had an edition of 50 and is SOLD OUT   Linda and I created this image when we were leaving Western Mass to head back to Philadelphia.  This was the last print created at Orange MA location of TinyMediaEmpire.  Carrie (the women featured) was a friend of a friend that studied musical therapy in Philadelphia.  One of two great models that I’ve worked with.  My wife and I don’t make too much art together and when I look at this print again I don’t know why, it’s pretty great.


MARGE (GREEN VARIANT).  This print is a three color screen print that has a blue and red variant as well as multiple AP’s.  The editions of this print are SOLD OUT. This print was a collaborative effort between Daniel Danger and myself.  I don’t what the motivation was, we probably just had some OHOP pizza and felt like making something.  The background is a collage of a bunch of positives from other prints that were lying around.  Daniel painted the trees directly onto a positive.  The photograph came from a session I did with Marge at her apartment in Brooklyn.  Marge is an illustrator, her work is dope.

MARGE, ROCHESTER. This print is a proof, the one and only copy made, of about 20 small plates hand inked and reassembled  into the full image.  I was working a lot with fracturing in my images and tried this out technique of assembling scrap plastic and exposing a full image to it.  It worked great but it was such a pain to print that I only did it once.  This print is NFS.  I took this photograph for a series where people had their body parts replaced by drawings from Grey’s Anatomy.  Pretty original idea right?

LINDA, RACE ST.  CMYK print 24″x24″ plates on 24″x31.5″ paper.  This image has an edition size of 3 and is SOLD OUT. This was the second print ever pulled using, what is now, the standard practice for printing CMYK intaglio, in other words the plates were plastic and printed face down.  I don’t know why I decided I needed registration marks but they kinda look sweet.  I photographed Linda (aka “wifey”) on Race St between 3rd and 2nd just before you get on 95 N.  The reflections really make this print and for me really legitimized what you can do with CMYK intaglio, not that photo real has to be your goal but just that you can it if you want to.

JULIA.  This print has an edition of 10 and is made of 8 individual plates inked and assembled on the press bed.  This print is SOLD OUT. This print was one of the first images to come out of the Arcadia University print department when I took over there in the fall of 2008.  I had worked in this style previously and it was a perfect thing to go back to as I was doing the research for black and white printing.  Julia is featured in a number of my prints, she is a model from the Allentown area.

NUDE #10 (AKA DOT NUDE 10).  This print is a four color CMYK and has an edition size of 25.  This image was the last of the series.  It can be purchased here.  At some point I think I grew increasingly self conscious about becoming known as the dude who does the nude prints.  In a certain community I began to feel pigeon holed, and this type of imagery was not something I had any interest in continuing with.

BRIDGE ST.  This print has an edition of 10 is made of 7 individual plates inked and the assembled on the press bed.  This print is SOLD OUT.  I have a thing for only wanting to photograph on over cast days.  It’s part of the reason that I only work in bursts and clusters, to many things have to be happening for me to feel like getting out my camera and taking some pictures.   I’ve driven past this billboard tons of times and always liked the intersection, where a church sits adjacent to a porno house.  I just happened to drive by on a good day for even light.

MILE-MARKER 122.  Construction Intaglio print with an edition size of 5.  Purchase this print here.  This image was created during a print series I did in the Spring of 2009 called 20 prints in 20 days.  It was a dumb thing to do because I really didn’t have 20 good images, but what ever.  I took this photograph somewhere on the west coast, maybe Oregon, I can’t remember.  I do remember there was a bunch of Elk drinking from the stream and tons of people pulled over, and then one group of dudes drove their SUV right up to them, crazy.

JULIA UNDER OAK.  This print is a CMYK construction and has an edition size of 5.  I have a couple around, send me a note if you want one.  This image was taken during my session with Julia out side under a giant oak ( I wonder where he gets his titles from?)  This type of image kinda works well with the technique and I really got into the notes on her scarf, they are the highlight of the print.

KIRA.  This print is a CMYK construction and has an edition of 5.  Send email for purchase.  This image was taken up at Smith College in Northampton MA.  Kira was a great model and had terrific room.
