Ever since Yuri Gagarin was heralded as the first man in space, there have been rumors that he was in fact preceded by Vladimir Ilyushin, a famous test pilot and decorated Hero of the Soviet Union. For this week’s “First”-themed issue of Greasy Magazine, I tried to imagine what Ilyushin may have encountered in orbit that was so troubling it necessitated his flight to be wiped from history instead of lauded as a Soviet victory.

Had a blast learning a bit about polyester plate lithography and monoprinting at the Valley Print Studio's open house event last Sunday. Thank you Zeina, Anna, and Miles for being such gracious hosts and patient tutors.
P.S. Sorry for talking about The Prestige so much. It was totally uncalled for.
Miles Lewis and I have decided to audition new contributors for our collaborative sketch blog, the Metaphorical Association. We’re seeking artists, writers, and/or musicians who generate 2-3 interesting ideas a week to get involved in our constantly evolving creative collaboration/combat. With multiple contributors, consistently broadcasting, we expect expanding exposure, in multiple circles. Please submit a portfolio/website if you want to be considered.
Thanks, from the future, for your submissions.

Really inspirational event! I think I got bitten by a printmaking bug that day; already working on some new screens.
