One of the original Outlaw Printmakers, Sean Star Wars! This event has it all —participants will learn the fundamentals of making woodcuts, seeing firsthand how to transfer images onto a block and get carving. In addition, Sean will walk through the process of multi-colour printing, giving all the tips and tricks he has to offer about adding more colour and dimension to your relief prints. Next, it’s time to get inky! Bring any boring t-shirt or tote to the event to have it transformed into a Sean Star Wars original with a live printing session using one of Sean Star Wars' precut blocks!

“I choose the format of the large scale color woodcut because it best suits my energy charged, caffeine induced, aggressive approach to image making. Charles Bukowski, Ms. Pacman, Phillip Guston and Neil Blender are among my influences. Somewhere along the way, I realized that I could accomplish my goals as an artist without enslaving myself to the meticulous obsessions of “traditional” printmaking. I don’t slow down to make perfect drawings or to finesse my color registration. I hammer out the carvings and blast out the prints, and move on to the next print, the next day. My primary concern is to create a strong visual infused with a sense of satirical humor, in other words I like to tell funny stories using funny pictures.”
