Old lithographs

I was going through some art papers and found these lithographs that I made while still in school. Although a little creepy, I do like them. Perfect for Halloween!
To make a lithograph, you make a drawing on a special stone with very greasy crayons, etch it, and then ink the stone and print from it. One need to be vary careful not to touch the stone with greasy fingers because the place will catch ink later and you will have fingerprints all over the paper. They may destroy your work. There is a way to delete them or any mistakes but it is better to keep it clean fro the start. What I like about lithographs is the look of very soft dark lines. Need to make some more in the future!
