These are some pieces I made while studying Printmaking at Edinboro University. Unfortunately, I don’t know the exact dates, but I know that they were created during the Fall 2000 semester.

Self Portrait

“Self-Portrait.” This is a wood block print, meaning that it was carved from a block of wood, covered with ink and pressed on to a piece of paper.

Portrait of a Superhero

“Portrait of a Super-Hero.” This is a metal etching print.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Sunday Strip

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, April 14, 1991

This was the highlight of my young life (and I’m still proud of it). I drew this picture of Michaelangelo and submitted it to the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles syndicated comic strip. They would sometimes publish fan art on Sundays, and this Sunday, April 14th, 1991, my dream of getting my art in every paper around the country came true. The coolest part is that the art was supposed to be hand picked by Kevin Eastman and Peter Laird, the creators of The Turtles, so it was an honor to have them view my art at age 9.
