A short video showing the Stencil Nation book cover stencil going up. Glad the artist finally found me!
I added a new batch of Videos to YouTube and my blog LoganHicks.com. Over the past year, I have been video taping various events, but I have neglected to upload them the internet. Doesn't do much good if you
don't get a chance to see them, so I finally got off of my ass and uploaded these mother suckers. This is my first crack at video editing, so enjoy the fumblings of a novice video jockey.
Here are the videos and the URLs:

A Simple heads up: The wrapping used for many types of paper is coated on one side with a thin sheet of plastic which makes it usefull for transferring prints to cloth via ironing. good dirty-cheap method that yields a crisp-clean print on a t-shirt. plus 'cause it's ironed on you can use floaters if you care to.
Another classic by Stencil Pirates author Josh MacPhee
Stenciling is the poor persons' printmaking. It is the easiest and cheapest way to print the same image over and over on different surfaces and in different places. To start off, the three most important things for making a stencil are an idea, something to cut with, and something to cut the stencil out of. I can't help with the idea part, but you shouldn't feel like you have to be an artist to do this. One of the great things about stencils is that since each print looks the same and consists of only a positive and negative, it makes almost all designs look really sharp and good.
