etching attempt


I finally remembered to bring this home from my locker at college. It's only a simple one-process etching, and I had fun making it. But at the same time, it made me very grateful for how easy it is just to pick up a pen and draw something! Oh, the other thing I found is that something with this much tonal variation seems hard to save for web - it still looked grainy at 150K.

I got a few much cleaner prints off the plate, but I kind of like the way this one looks a bit grimy, the way a London street scene with a dustman should look, I think.
