When I was in Chicago recently, I saw this little park on Printers' Row, an area of Chicago very close to downtown where a lot of printing and publishing companies used to be. Now there are mostly residential spaces like lofts. But I thought the letters in this park were very clever - just like letters for letterpress printing. And backward! Of course a printmaker like myself would love them! Very cool.

I've been working on this sketch for a new etching. Usually I like to make a sketch before I begin, so at least I can get a feeling for what the design that I want will look like. Also, I feel that I will have a better end result without as many corrections to the plate. That can be really frustrating and time-consuming! I would like to try something spontaneous someday though - no drawing! Just go for it!
