I just posted a few little skull monoprints up on my etsy. I make these little guys while teaching printing techniques to my students, in this case, it’s reductive inking and reworking the ghost.
Because I started out as a printmaker and sculptor, it took time to loose the idea that paper was a helpful carrier for prints or a filler for moulds. Gradually I found that the single sheet of paper, which had not dried yet, had all the possibilities I needed. A paper sheet is thin and strong and can be compared to the leaf on a tree or plant. Reinforced with very thin ribs of bamboo that look like the ribs of a leaf, the analogy between the sheet of paper and the plant form is emphasized even more.
Hand pulled screen print, with paper cut eyes. Made for the ‘Creature Collective’ exhibition.

This woman’s prints are amazing! I bought one of her prints a few years ago at the Small Press Expo in Maryland. Wish I had bought more at the time.
You know who’s a smart cookie? Illustrator Meg Hunt, that’s who. Artists, take notes:…I’ve decided to put together Print Club, a tiered membership offering that will give fans the prints they love before anybody else! Alpha-Level members get four prints (prints to be released will be either screenprint or letterpress, depending on what I fancy to make), Beta-Level members get two, and Gamma-Level supporters get one print of their choice. The process is simple- sign up for a membership and you’ll get put on a secret Print Club mailing list. A week before prints are announced to the public, Print Clubbers will get an email announcement sharing new prints. Respond back and choose the prints you want, and you’ll get them mailed out right away.
I love Meg Hunt’s work and will definitely be buying a print club subscription!
