Knife Making

My first attempt at making knives. It started from an American made file and then was grinded, filed, and sanded to the profile I wanted. The next stage will be working on the handle

Leather Case

I really like my Case trapper pocket knife and in it's honor I decided it needed it own case that I could wear on my belt and take with me to work. I made the leather case without a template and little help from my brother Bryan.

My first attempt at making a pair of custom grips. They were made using Cocobolo hardwood. All that is left to finish them out is to drill the holes for the screw and screw nut.

Earrings made from some of the cool beads my wife had got for me as a gift. It's a very simple design but I don't think it needed any more.

I just received these pictures of the Southern Pomo poster that I helped work on getting installed. I believe that they are being installed along a nature trail next to the Russian river. For a better look at the poster click the link Here

Eye on the Prize

Another print done with dry point and mezzotint. I really like the texture you can get from both of those techniques.

This print ended up giving me some trouble but in the end I think it came out to be a nice print. I used a few techniques in this print like line etching, aquatint, roulette, stenciling with spray paint and scraping and burnishing. Some of the issues I had were the white dots, they were caused by bubbles in the acid and I foul bit parts of my aquatint.

Dry Printmaking

Both of these prints were made using dry printmaking techniques. The top print I created using only dry point and the bottom print is a mezzotint. Both techniques don't require acid to create the image making them dry techniques.

Monotypes are prints that can only be produced one time while using a printing method i.e. press or baren. These are monotypes that were made during some free time while at school. I am taking pictures of a lot of my art work to get a portfolio out.

Southern Pomo Language Poster

I got a great chance to work on a large out door language poster for the southern pomo with Alex Walker and Dan McDaniel. In the poster we use bar codes that when scanned with an app made by Dan McDaniel will pronounce the word in the native language in southern pomo. In the image you may not be able to use the bar code so I have provided the bar codes below.
