These prints are what hit closer to home than what my usual projects do. Thanks to finals and being hit with tons of work, it puts me under a lot of stress. And with that stress, nightmares and inner demons. In an attempt to make myself at least feel better, I bring out what I see in my nightmares as a coping skill. I used three different techniques to bring out three different monsters: Printmaking, monoprint, and collograph respectively. These days, what I see and envision for some reason have a black background and some meaty, warm colors. Hence, the color choice for the first three being those colors. Sometimes, I see a muddy mess of gross colors, sometimes I see a figure. Although, for the last two made from printmaking, they weren't made from nightmares, but from my own conscious choices to make a horrendous monstrosity. Trust me, before ink was put on the print, it looked much more terrifying. It makes me feel much better when I make monsters scarier than my own.
