untitled (gel transfer print)

I recently gave this ink drawing to a friend of ours down at the shore. Of course, I still had the digital scan/image of it and, being an artist, I couldn’t help but use it when I started experimenting with gel transfer prints. I made the one below on the inside back cover of a found book, right over the old library card pocket.

The thing I really like about gel transfer: every print is unique, because the image infuses directly into the gel medium (before it dries), adhering to its texture (which is why it even folds over the edges of the library card pocket). And even a touch of colour can radically affect the otherwise transparent gel, as it did here.
