The periodic table printmaking project is up at the William Penn Charter School in Philadelphia, so if you are in the Philly area please stop by. http://azuregrackle.com/periodictable/table/ http://www.flickr.com/photos/azuregrackle/4415192883/in/pool-periodictable http://www.flickr.com/groups/periodictable/ I worked on rutherfordium and did a monoprint with Caron d'Arche watercolor crayons. Experimental at best like rutherforduim, created by among other methods bombarding plutonium with neon. Since this is the stuff science fiction is made of, I made the print to look like a page from a 1950s comic book. Russian and American researchers both laid claim to the element which was called kirchutovium for a while by the Russians, until a truce was decided and both men honored. Anyway, this is not my best work but the table looks fabulous with it in.
