back from Italy and Illustration Friday Night: Side Effects

The above image is from thinking too much about stuff, this is what happens.
Back from Italy.
In the 8 or so days, we managed to print 114 prints of an edition (which was already started by MH) of a three plate photographic etching for Luis Camnitzer. I had the pleasure of inking / wiping the yellow and red plates, trying not to oxidise the yellow, as you can do if you are trying to go to fast, and making sure I had wiped the red plate well, because it had a fair amount of transparency in it, it seemed. Tiring! The biggest day we did was 20 prints, but that meant printing for 9 hours straight, not really stopping. Good experience to try to be consistent with printing something as finicky as a multi-plate etching by hand.
Have also finally decided to go to Australia at the end of the month, after two years of not going back. Now I have decided I am looking forward to seeing everyone.
going to Italy

I agreed to go to Italy on Sunday for about a week to help MH (THE German assistant at the studio) print an edition of prints that were commissioned. I have never been there in Winter, and have seen photos of the studio in snow... it was cold enough in September, so ski underwear and tights go with me this time. Below is one of my favourite pieces of MH's.
Oh God! I keep forgetting my Italian is absolutely appalling now. I kind of remember words, but the French ones automatically pop out.
My part of the paper quilt

I was given a little extra time for my part of the last paper quilt, as I didn't receive the package before I went away to Morocco, but I finished it today, sent it off, and, well, there it is.
Morocco photos on line

Today I went to get some of the photos I took with my Fisheye camera with a film that I cross processed AND I finally uploaded some of our photos we took while we were on our road trip to Morocco.
Here they are: Our Morocco Trip
Back in the land of grey

So we are back in the land of my kitchen, my bed and my computer... and work. Happy New Year everyone.
I have just spent just over three weeks in Morocco, we drove from the North of France to just the top part of the Plage Blanche along the coast of Morocco. We didn't really go inland, we just wanted to be by the sea.
It was beautiful... apart from the garbage everywhere, perhaps I'll tell more stories about it at a later date.
