Momma Monster by empatia Momma Monster by empatia
Linocut, about 70x48cm, 5 colors
See all the prints (6 differnt colors) here [link]

This piece demanded quite a lot of work and since my screen isn't calibrated I can only hope the colors are the same as in reality (oh, and these are the closest to my original concept based on one of the outfits).I've made 11 copies in total and got 8 left (I'm going to upload them in one compilation later).

I'm going to send this one to Mother Monster along with other gaga pieces of mine (including those which I haven't executed yet) with some appreciation letter saying thanks for calling me fabulous ;) Probably she doesn't remember me anymore but this was the best thing that has ever happened to me in my whole life.

See the detail [link]

Update: I became a finalist of Drawn this way contest hold by V magazine and Lady Gaga!! There were over 1740 entries and this print is one of the 15 chosen works that have a chance to appear on V magazine cover in May, woohoo!
See it on V mag page: [link]

Someone posted this at littlemonsters.com. It is awesome. I've never been able to get my mind around reductive cutting, and to do something this complex blows me away.

Nice work with the finest details...
It seems that you printed light colors after dark ones, I wondered if it was possible. What is the ink you use ?

empatia Featured By Owner Mar 15, 2011
It's not like 'possible', it's the way it is usually done or should be done.
It's not ink, it's printmaking paint, I have no idea what brand it is and after all it doesn't matter at all.

Ok so it looks like really opaque paint. I'm gonna try with my water-paint-for-novice but I guess it won't work.

Thanks a lot for your advices.

Don't make orders when you haven't seen what you're actually ordering

I'm not sure.. this one's going to Gaga, I'm keeping 2-3 more and I'd like to have some spare ones for contests so if I'm ever going to sell some, it's going to be super exclusive (meaning expensive).
