I am Marc. Monkey Head headquarters is my house. I make art because I can’t stop. I am inspired by sarcasm, profanity, absurdity and terribleness. I grew up around my father’s children’s book illustrations which may explain why I express these things playfully and with bright colors.
I fluctuate between relief prints and screen prints. Sometimes I make screen prints of relief prints. I have never made relief prints from screen prints though that may be something to consider.
The process of cutting wood is lengthy but pleasant. I find that transferring ink from a piece of wood to finely toothed paper is both rewarding and soothing. The flexibility of screen printing allows me to print woodcuts alongside any imaginable texture or color with efficiency. The possibilities for experimentation are endless and I like that.
The majority of my printing is done at a wonderful co-operative printmaking studio named Flight 64. I encourage you to check out the other studio members’ artwork at flight64.org or on Flickr. My recent work is available for purchase by clicking on shop in the menu above.
