Listening to rebroadcast of the Cluck: From Jungle Fowl to City Chicks interview on Larry Meiller’s show (archives) that Susan Troller and I did earlier in the year, meanwhile drawing carcass for segment of Tunnel of Mortality that is upcoming solo show in June atArtisan Gallery.
Oh yeah, and my first reduction tees! (hint to you tee printing folks: if the lino is cut out in a shape, you can just line up color #2 by matching the outside contours of the block shape to the outside edges of the print shape) Just did 2 prototypes (pink thermal shown) to see if it would work…. It did!
Join DCHS in welcoming Sue Medaris for a talk about the life (and artwork) of raising chickens, peafowl, turkeys and more on her farm in the Driftless Area of Southern Wisconsin.

Corn King apparel available at the Spring Art Tour this weekend.
Corn King t-shirts now available!
For those of you who expressed interest in the Corn King shirts at the Consumption reception (noting that I didn’t have prices on them–doh!!–my fault for running out of time before the reception), they will be available at the Spring Art Tour this upcoming weekend, at my studio (see S.V. Medaris at the M.H. Spring Art Tour site, #10 on the Google map). More info about tour, maps, etc. at: Mount Horeb Area Spring Art Tour.
I will be printing some t-shirts on Friday, June 11th on the etching press, around noon.
If you have an old shirt you want the Corn King printed on, bring it along. $10 for printing on your shirt, $20 for a printed shirt on one of my tees (a variety are available–a few in each size). You can place an order for a tee in your size if I don’t have what you need–tees, tanks, long-sleeve…. If ordering a custom shirt, turnaround time is 1-2 weeks (depending on t-shirt availability).
Also, some other blocks are available for printing on shirts, such as “pork cuts” (a couple tees and an apron available).
