Relationship between drypoint bunny and music
I did a proofing for this drypoint black bunny today. It took a while to get a velvety black I wanted. I made this plate a long time ago but it wasn't black enough after the initial proof so I had to scratch it really violently.
I was listening to Eric's old CD of Rage Against the Machine when I was scratching the plate. And it worked so well. I had an insane energy to get the dark black I wanted. I love finding out what music works best in different circumstances. I don't think I can listen to this when I'm editioning or even reading though!
