“The Great American Hunger” my first larger lithograph. For the assignment we had to draw two separate words out of a hat and my two were “future” and “wings”. I wanted to stray away from using ideas that I immediately think about when I hear those words. I decided to do a scene of the Donner party before they met their tragic end. (James and Margaret Reed, a couple that helped lead the donner party, are in this image) some of the figures’ appendages have been replaced with wings as an allusion to the events to come. I used this image as a way to pay homage to some of my favorite American cannibal movies, as well as real American accounts of cannibalism. @jessica_kay_ and I are also in this image because why not? I use this idea of hunger in a few different ways. The blatantly obvious one, and the hunger for wealth that is so prominent in America, which also ties to the metaphor that we will, as a society, eat each other alive in order to get ahead. Do you recognize any of these figures or references? If so, comment and let me know! I’m interested to see how obvious/not so obvious they are to people that aren’t me! Lithography is a beast of a medium that I definitely need a break from for a minute, but I look forward to trying it again sometime!

Haciendo pruebas de distintos lápices para lito, recuperé unos viejos lápices grasos @fabercastellglobal que hacía tiempo que no usaba y fue todo un descubrimiento. Registran hasta el más mínimo matiz y es supercómodo trabajar con ellos. Ya no puedo dejar de usarlos ✏️______ #wip inspired by the hypnotic movements of @shoheihoriuchi_ and the wonderful eye of @pickledthoughts

“Sanctum”, Fabricated Black, White, Sanguine Conte Crayon on toned paper, 12” X 18”
If there were ever a banner year for a football player, Sammy Baugh’s 1943 season would be it. Slingin’ Sammy as he was referred to is widely regarded as one of the top quarterbacks of all-time, but to merely highlight his accomplishments as a passer would be a disservice to the Hall of Famer.
In the 1943 season, Baugh simply had the greatest year ever by any football player – even by today’s standards. In addition to leading the league in passing, Baugh led the league in punting, with a record 45.9 yards-per-punt average, and in interceptions, with 11 – including four in one game.
On the football field, Baugh was known for his durability and toughness, which enabled him to play an astonishing 16 years in NFL when face-masks were not required and extreme physical contact was the norm. Upon retiring from the pro football, Baugh went back to work on his ranch in Rotan, Texas. Baugh is a charter member of the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
The card displayed here from a private collection is a key piece in the 1948 Leaf football card set and is the most desirable one in the ninety-eight card set. Often hampered by printing issues such as poor centering, printing defects and general inconsistency in print quality, the card displayed here has bright, vivid color, clean white borders, four sharp corners – exhibiting all the qualities of a true near-mint card. Of the over 200 1948 Leaf Baugh cards that have been reviewed, only ten have been deemed near-mint condition and only three have been rated higher!

Included in "Regional Collective" at the Turner Print Museum is printmaker Herlinde Spahr. On view March 11 – April 13, 2019. Juror’s Talk & Artist Reception Thursday, March 28, beginning at 5:30pm in the Zingg Recital Hall, continuing into the Turner Museum.
"The work evokes the territory of the imagination, when thought is submerged and rendered helpless. Surrounded by darkness and silence, the outside world peels away and vision originates from within. Logic and reason become scaffolding. It is soothing to draw on solid stone when trying to capture such a nebulous realm.”
This print is also the cover image of Spahr's recent book: "Lying Awake. With Excerpts from the Artist’s Notebooks" which is the recipient of a special recommendation from the Achenbach Graphics Arts Council at the Legion of Honor, SF.
“Regional Collective” is on view at the Janet Turner Print Museum in Chico CA

"Home Sweet Home"
A series of litho prints based on revisiting memories from my childhood home, the only place I have ever considered a home. As these memories fade and as I age, I wonder if my memories were as wonderful as I once remembered them to be.
