Sometimes I like to incorporate text into my prints —  typically when I am mulling over a problem or am feeling angry or frustrated about something.  Making these prints is very cathartic, and people seem to respond well to them.  Last week I experimented with happy thoughts.  I learned that I have to write a lot bigger and that it is way less satisfying.  I think expressing my feelings through printmaking actually helps me get over them, whereas trying to brainwash myself with positivity feels like smearing a thick coat of frosting on, well, shit.
