I was doing printmaking at Sonoma State University in the late 80's, early 90's. they had some really nice equipment, A press to die for, about 36"-48" wide and it just picked up every nuance of what was on the plate so easily!
Anyway, I was asking friends and associates to sit for me and I would do their portraits using simple black ink and a large piece of plexiglass. This I believe is the first one that I pulled of Eddie, which I then reworked some after the pull. Now, when you pull a print it will leave a ghost image on the plate that then gives you something of a headstart on the next pull if you are into doing a series.
This next print is a result of reworking the ghost image on the plate and then pulling the print. This print/portrait I am very pleased with and left it alone after the pull. It shows a directness and purity that I strive for.
Have a great day!
