The relationships between rendering and digital fabrication processes to traditional printmaking is an important aspect of my current work.

Ambient Occlusion rendering provides a means of creating renderings that manipulate value and create marks that are similar in many ways to lithographic printing processes.

While wood engraving and block printing seems to consume much of my creative energy these days, I look forward to exploring the lithographic process through ambient occlusion rendering.

Etching, Wood Block Printing and Lithography. I guess it all has come full circle.
