Boaring Screen-Print

I finally put my beloved boar head on a silk screen so I could print it anywhere I pleased. Hooray!
I didn’t heat set my shirts, because it’s tedious, but it gave the shirts a cool, weathered look.

Here’s one I printed on wood and cut on my scroll saw. My cat, Bonnie, inspects the work I’m doing.

Here’s the original image and a link to the original post in which this swine made its debut.

Ink Wash

Hey y’all, I have been in grad school for the last month, and it was heaven! Good peeps, bad language, and tons of drawing! I’ve never felt so at home with a group of people. We had a great tools and techniques course and I started to learn how to do ink wash. It’s too much fun!

Boar Head 6: Big Boar

I really like the last few boar heads I’ve made, so I wanted to kick it it up a notch. Making the boar head on a larger scale has it’s share of challenges, some things are much easier to do. The boar’s little teeth, for example are much less of a headache on the big boar. The bottom picture should give you an idea of how big this boar head is.

Boar Head 5 ?!

Have I gone mad?! Yes, I have started yet another Boar head! As with the fourth boar head, I tried to give this pig creases and wrinkles. I thought I’d give this piggy a wreath of oak leaves to give this boar head an alpine feel.

Glazed: Lion Head and Boar Head III

I think I will make a plaster mold for casting ceramics, so I can make more of these boars. Overall, the third boar is a success, but I prefer the rough texture of the un-glazed boar.

I think the glaze worked very well for the lion, though.

Boar Head 2: Finally Done!

At long last, I have finally finished my second boar head! Directly below you can see it glazed and mounted to some plywood that I cut and stained. The boar head’s journey from glazing to finished product follows.
