Maureen Booth screenprintMy 40%-Off Summer Sale was a surprising success. It seems a big discount is a big incentive. So I’ve decided to extend it till Oct. 2 for all those clever people who didn’t look at Internet during the month of August. You’re not too late. You can now download any and all of the videos at a discount of 40%. So you can now purchase a single video, normally $19.95, for $11.97. And all six of them are just $71.82, down from $119.70.

I had a lot of fun making these printmaking instruction tapes with video producer, Juan Carlos Romera, and they have received a warm reception from the printmakers who have downloaded them thus far.

To take advantage of this extended offer you’ll need this discount code: 90U010R3. When you reach the payment stage of the order process on my Printmaking Master Classes site, just introduce the discount code when prompted.

Happy printmaking! September is a wonderful month to make prints.

We had such a great time doing it that I decided that in my next encarnation I want to be an actress. Here’s the link to see it (for free) on the off chance that you might find it amusing:

Mike did a story on the making of “Bive” (Printmaking Makes the Movies) and published it here on World Printmakers.

Juan Carlos Romera, filmmaker and video producerFrom Maureen Booth, Granada, Spain, August 12, 2011–Juan Carlos Romera is an old friend of ours. He’s also an award-winning documentary filmmaker. When he showed up at our house a few months ago with a new video project, I wasn’t surprised. What was surprising was that he wanted me to be a partner in it.

Juan Carlos, who has always been fascinated by etchings, already had the plan worked out. Between the two of us we would produce a series of on-demand fine-art printmaking instruction videos. This would be a ideal way to extend the essence of my printmaking workshops to printmakers around the world, and it would also be an educational initiative aimed at fine-art print lovers and collectors. It sounded simple enough but, as we all know, nothing is as simple as it sounds. (more…)
