Now here’s something you don’t see every day, printmaking using a steamroller as the press. This took place at the Martha Street Studio Steamroller Festival in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada.

A few more pictures on their website.

  1. My buddy does similar printmaking, he built a cool little print making machine and takes it to places and teaches how to make basic prints. The print screen is a flat piece of styrofoam that you draw with a pen, the indentations you make are what doesn’t get printed. Pretty cool, you guys should feature them. They’ve shown a lot of people the process of printing, and are really great guys.
