Day 16: Print

Amber Fischer Photography Challenge
Day 16: Print

Printmaking: the process of making artworks by printing designs onto paper. Often researched in secondary school art classes, (where I learned the process), printmaking most often covers only the process of creating prints with a certain element of originality, rather than just being a photographic reproduction of a painting. My friend Jenny certainly took that to heart when she created this portrait depicting an evil version of me with my pet bat, Diego. And I love her for it.

There are several techniques and avenues for printmaking and they can be very tedious. But as you can see, the end result for those who put their heart into their pieces, the results are amazing with highly detailed images.

I will always treasure this print from my dear friend.
