Collaborating with Ed Hamilton on lithographs has been such a great experience. When I was first asked by Ed Ruscha to do prints with Ed Hamilton, I thought we would work on etchings. I went to meet Ed Hamilton and said, "Ed, I am really excited about doing etchings with you!". He said, "we do lithography here". I said, "I am really excited to work on some lithographs with you!". :-) I do love etching, but Ed made it possible for me to experiment and try to get some etching into some of the many lithographs we did together, by scratching into the plates I had drawn into. I do love lithography now as well. What a great printmaker he is!
