going on a journey

There's a thread that ties together storytelling/narratives and printmaking: the journey. A story moves in two ways - starting at the beginning, traveling to the middle, and finishing at (where else?) the end. It can also move you, as reader, from the real world into the world of the story. As for printmaking, it's also about movement: the movement of ink/paint/marks/information from one surface to another. Every print is a narrative in itself, telling the story of how it was created.

narratives = journeys = prints
