Reflecting

Was a great week. Lots of printing happening. Sorry for the terrible pictures. Curtis

Week 4

So I couldn’t get my printer to recognize the inkjet sheets, it refused to print on it. So that sucks, I tried to print on my old little cannon ink jet too and it wouldn’t come out black, It was only printing in dark purple. I printed like 6 times over and it was still…

Week 3 reflection

So this week was a bust. My emulsion didn’t seem quite dry and for whatever reason I exposed it anyways. I also left it on for 1 minute too long due to technical difficulties. I was trying too hard to come up with a solid design and it took me 3 days to come up…
