Hey EveryOne, this weekend Saturday, Nov. 9th, and Sunday, Nov. 10th, both from 11 AM- 5 PM is Open Studio Tour. I will be there both as YAYBIG Director and me Joe Marshall of Pork Chop Press. Also there with YAYBIG’s new flat file and showing my own prints and work of local printmakers Gonzalo Espinosa, and Danny Martin along with others.
New for 2014 will be a print subscription from , me and Mo Ichido Publishing. Mo Ichido is a new print publisher I created to help spread the word and image of printmaking, this is my first subscription. When you subscribe you receive 1 print per month for a year. This is a great opportunity to support Mo Ichido Publishing and printmaking, while building your print collection. The name of the subscription is “The Invisible Journey”, and each print is like a chapter heading from a longer/larger story. Centered around a trained Shadow Shaman, named Maze. All prints in “The Invisible Journey” are cut on 6′ x 8″, 3/8″ Shina plywood blocks, in three to four colors. Handprinted on quality paper, each print is signed and chopmarked by me the printmaker. It also includes a handmade folio of acid-free materials. This way you may look at the print at your own pace and have the story unfold. The subscription fee is $35 a month through PayPal or $420 for the year through Square, forms will be available at Open Studio.
