Where can you see 3D printing, Robot paper dinosaurs and be able to print on a vintage letterpress press? At the Scranton Mini Maker Faire hosted by Johnson College on October 4th, 10 a.m.-7 p.m. I’m hauling in my Kelsey press, some lead and wood type and a souvenir plate for DIY printing.

Maker Faire is the Greatest Show (and Tell) on Earth—a family-friendly showcase of invention, creativity and resourcefulness, and a celebration of the Maker movement.  It’s a place where people show what they are making, and share what they are learning. Makers range from tech enthusiasts to crafters to homesteaders to scientists to garage tinkerers.  They are of all ages and backgrounds. The aim of Maker Faire is to entertain, inform, connect and grow this community.

The Happy Owl project

Owl print

Just posted a new project on Behance ! I created a print based on art I made around age 7. This owl print was created for a print exchange for the Mid-America Print Council conference, “Print City: Detroit 2014″. I created 15 11″ x 14″ prints using linoleum and silkscreen on Arches 88 paper. After posting the project on Facebook, I had may requests to purchase the owl, so I created an EV (edition variable) with slightly different colors on a Canson heavyweight paper. The new edition size 25 with a page size of 11″ x 15″. You can read about the project here:

The smell of machinery and ink filled the small work space on Adams Ave. in Scranton.

Paper lay strewn across the counter and a closer look showed letters perfectly matched and strategically placed on a frame. Traces of ink covered each letter, and a pattern shown in each letter from the paper’s texture. Fresh ink, recently mixed, lay ready for another go.

Christine Medley smiled as she hung the construction paper on the line to dry. She took a step back, admired her work and wiped her hands in her apron.
