I’ll flood your screen.

January 26, 2009

I love a challenge.  That being said, I’m not a huge fan of things that feel nearly impossible for me to accomplish.  Today was my first day working alone in Printmaking and for the first two hours I seriously considered running to the Registrar’s Office to check for an opening in Photo II.  It’s not that I don’t like it–I actually really love it–but I just can’t get the hang of it.  The emulsion scraped off when I rinsed the screen, I can’t apply enough pressure when I’m pulling, and the damned power washer scares the shit out of me.  After having a near meltdown, Ryan came back to class and helped me pull 16 (near) perfect flats.  Granted, they’re just flats,  but compared to the attempts I had on my own, I feel as though I have something to be excited about.  Wednesday will be helping him pull and getting my halftone sorted out so I can finish up the project.

The evening will be rounded out by trying to force down some dinner, running for an hour of dance, and a FTW meeting.  What a night.
