And now for something completely different...

Lately, I have been working on a few other projects that really...have no explanation. Going back to the illustrator roots!

"Formally Primal"

I have also been working on printing and stretching my own canvases. I am using Epson Exhibition Canvas Matte. The print quality is fabulous, though the canvas is thick and impossible to fold the corners the 'proper' way. I recommend using a "prevent paper abrasion" setting on your printer if you decide to do this yourself. The paper is thick and this setting will allow for more feeding space and...well, prevent smudging and "abrasion" as the canvas goes through the printer. Let it dry overnight and spray with a protective coating. The ink will scuff if handled too much, but doing this will reduce the chances at least. It'll be a hot mess if you begin stretching before the ink is dry. You can see the canvas stretching here:

  1. Loving formally primal. No explanations make for bigger smiles. Canvas look great
