JC Smith - Artist

First got to know JC, or Pinkdog as he's widely know, last summer at one of the Making Art Safely Workshops.  We've talked, corresponded and visited together since then, and I've come to understand [slightly] his humor and appreciate his art.

JC works lately in photogravure.  I've been going thru some files he sent me for a video piece I'm doing on him and thought I'd post a few of my favorites here so others could see some of his work.

Lambie Visits Reno

Tutti Fruitti

Zoltar Knows

All of the above 4x5 images, photogravure using the DTP method.  

He'll be back in NM in June and I'm looking forward to seeing some new images and having a wacky time with him.  

As a note his long suffering and very lovely wife will not be with him - too bad as she could have an eye rolling fest with my wife.

Oh yeah, as a final note, seems we're actually related.  Where has the gene pool gone, gone for pudding everyone.
