Illustration Friday- Primitive


My favorite part of my trip to Mexico was getting to go into the more rural parts of the country and seeing the real people. Many of the markets seemed really PRIMITIVE and beautiful compared to the massive American malls. I loved all the colors.
This is a copperplate etching and aquatint that I did in college a few years ago from a photo that I took in Mexico. This little hat stand was so perfect! Printmaking is so awesome, I just wish I had the resources to do this in my own home.
