Rockin' and Rollin' Prints 2015

Print Matters is a Houston artists' group that promotes the art of printmaking with events in the late spring and summer months. For the last five years they've held Rockin' and Rollin' prints where large blocks of MDF are carved and printed with a steamroller. I've participated every year. You can see my print from this year and two previous years here.
This is my friend David inking my block.
And this is my sketch of Leamon Green inking blocks.
Usually I'm too keyed up to tap into the zen of sketching, but this year I made myself relax and capture a bit of the action. Several other Houston sketchers made an appearance and did some sketching. It was a beautiful day for it.
