Baltimore Print Studios Opening

photo
We made it down to the Baltimore Print Studios Grand Opening!
The most pleasing and distinctive thing was Baltimore's own National Bohemian beer.
Also of note was a 4'6" tiny and angry girl with a printing press tattoo on the back of her twig-like thigh. The tattooist must have been good with miniatures, like the guy that can make the Declaration of Independence on the head of a pin... Her fly like movements avoided a good capture of the miniaturists work. However we were able to snap a quick shot of a lunging Mondo Bizzaro.

A pencil thin creature with a wild bushy hairdo and coonskin cap with horn rimmed glasses, black dress oxfords, no socks, and a buffalo plaid shirt. Not to mention it was at least a head taller than everyone in the room... I heard it mention "I live off cheese..."

There was an abundant supply of polite gallery food, such as chips, salsa, humus, dips, celery, carrots, crackers- the usual fare, and cheese! (much to Mondo Bizzaro's delight...)

Printing demonstrations.

Letterpress and silkscreen

A turntable played music nobody could hear (we only noticed it on our way out)

The disc of choice.

All and all a clean and well run operation. Very printerly, no smudges, no drips, clean lines.

(I'd love to make a Chick Likes Meatball letterpress print, hmm
may have to investigate their winter courses!)
