A little bit about PapaLlama.
What started off as a lino cut, inspired by my friend's love of the phrase "awesome sauce", has turned into quite the adventure.

I went from not knowing anything about printmaking, to restoring and learning how to print on a 1910, treadle operated, 1,800lb. press, named "Mama" to operating a 1949 Heidelberg windmill named "Barbara". I love using these beautiful (and bad-ass) machines and traditional ways of printing and mixing it up with my bold and cheeky designs. I draw every design and saying you see here and once I make them into a polymer plate (it's like a super hard stamp), they're ready to go on press!

There's nothing like the industrial hums of the press, but when good ol' Babs is on a roll... she steals my heart all over again.

I chose letterpress because I wanted a way to make multiples of something, while still maintaining the handmade quality. Variations are what makes each PapaLlama card unique. I hope you send it, share it, keep it, or frame it!
