This year I’ve cleared my calendar to get back to writing and illustrating my second comic book about the sinking of the S.S. Caribou on October 14th, 1942, Lifeboats Down to be released by Breakwater Books in the spring of next year. (If you had a relative on the S.S. Caribou that night, please check out my page “S.S. Caribou: Passengers & Crew 14/10/1942”.)
Morgan’s Printing Office Reconstituted is currently set up in the mail floor of the Neal Building, where it is my occasional studio and a place where I’ve given a couple of workshops this winter.
If you are interested buying anything you’ve seen at a show or craft fair, my work is available at the Red Ochre Gallery, 96 Duckworth Street, St. John’s, NL: http://www.redochregallery.ca and Devon House Gallery.
Upcoming Events in May:
Intro to Etching on Aluminum Plates: Participants will learn how to prepare plates, scribe, etch, ink and pull prints. This technique uses a non-acidic mordant, that has fewer bio-hazards than most etchants. Participants will complete a 5″x7″ line etching and prepare a plate that can be etched at another time. Bring a 5″x7″ line drawing to etch. I will be leading this workshop for St. Michael’s Printshop but at my studio.Date: Saturday, May 5, 2018.Time: 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m (bring lunch or break for lunch)Place: The Neal Building, 50 Harbour Drive east, main floor (look for the brick light house) free parking in surrounding lot.Cost: $65 (materials included) If you are taking the printing workshop on May 6 the cost is $85 for both days.
