My Self-Portrait (litho print)

This was a color litho print I made in college as an art major. There are only 4 prints of this in the world! :) I really really love printmaking, b/c the results are so unpredictable and the process is pretty challenging. There are just so many steps to making the print, including grinding down limestone, staining it, washing it over and over, etc. Also, I had to think about what colors (cyan, magenta, yellow) to put down first to create the picture--and do that 3 times to produce each print. Definitely miss printmaking.
