I work directly with a live model (currently via Zoom due to pandemic restrictions). The poses range from 10 to 30 minutes so a direct focus is required of me. I create a reference drawing and then ink the plate referencing the model and the drawing together. I pull the print, clean the plate and reset for the next pose. It forces me to make a quick visual judgment and then focus in and create that on the printing plate. Each of these are one of a kind, original prints with Akua ink on acid-free/archival paper.
