2011. Etching, scanned and colored. For those interested, the process involved coating a metal plate(zinc I believe) with some acid-resistant solution, then stratching into the plate. Then, the plate was dropped into an acid bath, which ate away at the scratch marks. Then the plate was removed, covered with ink, and then wiped the ink off. After wiping, the only remaining ink was in the scratch marks. then the plate was run through a press, giving me my prints.
