Cleaning out my filing cabinet, I found this handout that I made for my mini-comics class.  Hope it’s helpful!  Remember, it ain’t only for comics.  Self-publish short stories, collections of drawings or sketches, or blank for journals/sketchbooks, etc.

Good notes!

In collaboration with the World Wildlife Fund, National Geographic just released a video explaining the impact of a cotton t-shirt: how much water it takes to make just one, how much energy it takes to grow, manufacture, and transport that shirt, and how much water and energy it takes to care for that shirt in your home. The video also explains how we can make a difference in reducing the resources used in care for that shirt: 

One load of washing uses 40 gallons of water. One load of drying uses 5 times more energy than washing. In fact, skipping the ironing and drying of your t-shirt, saves a third of its carbon footprint.

Whether it’s reducing waste, saving energy, or being a conscious consumer, small actions can make a big difference. Think about ways that you could save energy and water.

Interested in a few changes that makes an impact?

1. Buy and share second-hand clothes. Related watching: Jessi Arrington’s Wearing Nothing New TedTalk about buying thrift store clothing. Two favorite quotes: “Color is powerful. It is almost physiologically impossible to be in a bad mood when you’re wearing bright red pants.” and ”Fitting in is way overrated.” 

2. Buy a drying rack at a local store and let the sun (or the heat in your house) do all of the work!

“How to deactivate a cat”
For those that are like “what?” it is instinct for a cat to stop moving when picked up by the scruff of the neck, as that’s how a mother cat gets her kittens places.

OH MY GODS THEY HAVE AN OFF SWITCH

omg

At a Portland TEDx event, Oregonian Joe Smith demonstrates how to use a paper towel, and moreover, demonstrates how easy it is to be mindful. Everyone should see this!

RETURN TO KITCHEN.  REMEMBER YOU HAVEN’T HAD HOT TEA IN YEARS AND DECIDE YOU DON’T NEED IT NOW, AND POUR THAT SHIT OVER ICE IN A TRAVEL MUG BIG ENOUGH FOR WAL-MART TO BE PROUD OF.  FISHING OUT THE TEA BAGS IS OPTIONAL.

DRINK ON WAY TO WORK, DISCOVER WHEN YOU GET THERE YOU ONLY PUT MASCARA ON ONE EYE.

Some people have asked me to talk about my printmaking process and since I spent tonight collaborating with my professor, I would show you guys how to do something called kitchen lithography

we used the directions from a youtube video that does a good job of demonstrating how to do this

I will be elaborating more from the video to help you guys out if you want to try this, it’s very easy to do and it’s way simpler than actual lithography

  • in the beginning where he’s painting with the bar of soap,  I should mention that that soap has a lot of oil in it.  You want to use oil based materials.  For our plate, my professor and I used oil based pens.  Pens such as DecoColor and Pilot work really well
  • Coke or any knock off brand will work after you finish your drawing and you’re ready to soak it with said soda
  • after cleaning the coke, the guy is using vegetable oil.  This is an important step.  The pens/soap/etc. that you’re using doesn’t have enough oil in it so the vegetable oil will add more
  • Don’t worry if your drawing disappears when you’re cleaning the oil, the drawing is still technically there
  • use oil based paints
  • Make sure to clean your roller every time you roll.  You’ll be getting water on it from the sponge, and when it has water on it you’ll be taking paint away from your plate
  • you can probably get about a dozen or so good prints out of the plate

I’ll probably talk about more printmaking things in the future, at least until i finally get my tablet
