Hello Winter -> I'm escaping to New York

So I am currently in a phase of preparation for the next 4 prints. First of all I have been preparing a couple of ballgrain litho plates for a color lithograph, I am slightly indecisive on the colors, and I am scared of printing 2 fullsize plates for the first time, but I am sure I will get on that as soon as I have paper. I also spent the past 2 days preparing 2 new monotypes, and one little linocut.
I've been battling a cold for about a month now, and got hit pretty hard last week so I took 3 sick days and just worked on some stuff at home as far as my cough allowed it. I also finally got around to assembling the last few copies of the "reflection" book that I printed during the last two weeks in Hartford. Being sick was actually productive for once.

Thursday evening a bunch of printmakers will hop into stephen frew's car and head south of the border so invade new york. This week is the New York Print fair and we are planing on seeing that on Friday as well as visit some Printstudios in the city.
Saturday afternoon I am heading to New Jersey to see Fiona and Cornelia, maybe even Eva she just doesn't know it yet ;). Depending on when we are heading back, I'll be back in the city Sunday night or Monday morning, and then head back up to Montreal with stops in Hartford and Vermont.
Overall it's going to be a crazy weekend. And hopefully I will return with loads of cheap paper and energy to jump right into printing my 4 new images next week.


I saw this guy in a storefront on Mont Royal Ave 2 weeks ago and he made me laugh. So there you go.
Oh and winter has started, IT IS SOOOOOO COLD ALREADY! And it's only going to get worse. I need to buy gloves!!!!
