I was up all night etching on plexi for my printmaking class.

It’s just like drawing. Except pretend you’re blindfolded and have Parkinson’s and there is no such thing as an eraser.
My hand really hurts from holding the metal etching needle for so long.

I’m off to the printmaking lab to see if any of these lines will hold ink (a lot of them hardly show up on the scan, especially the verticle ones in the tree)

I don’t really know. I can’t imagine trying to freehand draw on this thing, I’m glad she recommended we use a reference.
