Illustration Friday: Talisman

strategic plan 22 x30 lithographic print on BFK Rives

He appeared confident in all situations
but no one knew his secret talisman was luck.

Here's the my actual stone being inked up. Lithography is like anti-printmaking. It is so odd to keep the stone soaking wet while you ink it up. All the signs that tell you a print is ready to be pulled are muffled in this process; it's the water. It totally threw me off. I think it could take many years to really understand this process. Interesting.

Here's the first print coming off the stone. It was a good one too. I was lucky, (must have had a talisman of my own that day), cause I don't know much about this process yet, so it sure wasn't a success due to skill!
