Recent Prints: Woodcuts & Screenprints...


This is a woodcut print I did at the beginning of this semester called, "Laborer and Monkey-Wrench". The block is 16"x20" and was more work than I had anticipated, but it's nice to work in a larger scale for a change.

This one is a two-block woodcut print called, "Peepholes". Both blocks measure at 9"x12" and were printed with water-based ink.


"Duel with Oklahoma" is a two-color screenprint I did in an edition of 40. It's on "speckletone" 100lb. French paper measuring at 12.5 x 16.5.

Finally, this is "Perspire/Expire", a four-color screenprint from a drawing I did previously. This is for Paul Nudd's "Corpus/Corpus" zine and print collection which will feature Nudd, Mike Diana, Greg Jabobson, Bruno Richard, Anne Van der Linden, Mariano Chavez, and others. I still feel like it's crazy that I'll be sharing "space" with these ridiculously talented folks, but Paul Nudd asked and I jumped on the opportunity.

I apologize for the poor photos I took with my 5 year-old digital camera, but at least you can get the gist of what these prints look like.

These are great! I like the first one best, I think, but Duel with Oklahoma is pretty great also

Hey Jeremy - I just want you to know that I am proud of you. Really! Your style has come together so nicely...I can say "I knew him when..."

All the best,

Thanks Dave and Dave! I'll be posting the remaining two prints that I'm currently working on once they're done. And yeah, I keep going back to Okie stuff. Can't help it, I s'pose.

Ah, I commented yesterday, but it didn't show up. Anyway, these prints are fantastic! Woodcut especially is a good medium for you.

Thanks John! I'm still really rusty on my printmaking skills, but I'd like to spend some more time with it. Thanks again!

Hello Mr. Onsmith.

I am new to viewing your work, and would like to say that I am enjoying it a great deal. I'd like to inquire as to where I could purchase a copy of the zine that your print "Perspire/Expire" will appear in: "corpus/corpus"?

Cheers,
ryan standfest

Thanks very much, Ryan. Paul Nudd is the guy putting the zine/print booklet together and I'm not sure where it's going just yet. Possibly "Printed Matter" and a couple of other places. Once I know, I'll post something about it. There's only 100 copies being put together...
