Ringing in 2008 (Adrienne Miller)

I am finally posting some sketches of things I've been working on lately. Birds again, movement, multiple views of the same thing...been journaling alot to figure out why certain images keep coming back to me. 
All these have been separated and are currently shot in silkscreens and waiting on me to use them. 
My New Years Resolution: FINISH SOMETHING.

Overdue (Adrienne Miller)

It was brought to my attention today that if you google: "Hatch Show Print Adrienne Miller" that images of me working this summer come up.

For about a week or two in July (i think) a lovely group of people from the Smithsonian came to Hatch to take photos in the shop and to record interviews for a future podcast. They are putting together a traveling exhibition to showcase both old and new Hatch prints and celebrate the history of the shop.

Here is the link to the website: Smithsonian Traveling Exhibitions

Me assembling the Damien Rice poster for the show at the Ryman in August. Working on the woodblock background for both of the Damien posters and the Murray State concert poster is next to it. Mr. Brad Vetter is there working too. You should google his name also. He's a great friend, taught me the ways of letterpress, and way cooler than I will ever be. Plus he makes some kickass posters.
(I just got the John Prine one he made and it makes me want to drool.)

Anyways, life in Nashville has been good lately. I took advantage of my "best intern ever" status from Hatch and designed some unconventional Christmas cards there. Finished them tonight (edition of 50) and am in the process of writing/addressing them at the moment so they will be in the mail soon. I have a few silkscreens drying and ready for exposure, sketches waiting to be scanned, etc etc. Its nice to finally be working for myself again after a long overdue break.

Hope everyone is doing well and has great Christmas plans. Happy Holidays!

I have a new image/thing I am working with!

It's actually a thing that has some fishiness, some rock like features, and some vegatative qualities.

the result is a rather beautiful least I think so.

the more I look at it, the more it looks like a streched out head of lettuce or cabbage.


Check out these bad boys or girls (depending how you look at plates)
