When I was in Art College, one of my majors was print making. I studied etching, lithography and silkscreen. Every terms I have a produce an edition print of no less than 25 prints and every prints has to be exactly the same from number one to number 25. I sent hours working on my prints in the print studio. On my graduate year, my hard work paid off, I was awarded the outstanding print maker that year. However, as soon as left college my print making career was over as well
I was busy to earn a living and to pay back my student loan and making print was the last thing I was thinking about. There was not much outlets to sell my prints or jobs for a printer maker. The closest job for a print maker was silk screen t-shirt printer. I kept most of those prints in my parentís basement. All together I think I must have at least a couple hundred prints.
Later, I moved out from home into my own apartment. I was too poor to purchase some blinds for my windows; I made my prints into window blinds. Even it was years ago but some friends would tell me they still remember those beautiful hand- printed window blinds I had.
Recently, I got an idea to give a new life to those old prints. I started to cut up some of them and I had turned them into paper architecture cards.
