Hanging Etchings

I posted this goofy photo at the HC blog a while back, and I'll post it here for the heck of it. Someday I'll scan one of these etchings, right side up. The plates are 12" x 18" (I used two to make the image), the biggest I've worked with.

Barbie Meets GI Joe

Three years ago, I drew a huge (about 3' x 8') picture of Barbie for a group show of huge Barbie and GI Joe images. I don't really recall the specifics of I drew, but that show is finally happening, or at least part of it is finally going on display, at Oakton Community College's Koehnline Museum of Art, from 9/6 - 10/19. More info at

Here is the show blurb:

"For better or for worse, Barbie and G.I. Joe have come to embody the adolescent ideas that shape our individual, cultural, and sexual identities. This provocative installation presents the works of more than 40 artists responding to identical life-size outlines of these iconic doll images. The resulting works in a variety of styles and media range from intense, personal images to depictions that reflect more universal social and political themes. This exhibition is a project of Patrick Miceli, a Chicago artist known for 'found object' installations that deconstruct America’s fast food and pop cultures."

Life Drawing: Trace Monotypes

These are trace monotypes based on life drawing sketches. I put the blank side of the drawing on a slab of ink and traced over the linework with ballpoint pen. The reverse side picks up the impressions in ink. I used a blue slab and a black slab of ink for these images. The second image has some touches of gesso, as well.
