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.
