He appeared confident in all situations
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!
