On my second monotype I referenced a drawing I did while at MOMA, during a gallery tour of Degas’ monotypes. It was so crowded, and I had already viewed the entire exhibit on a previous visit, I decided to sketch the people between me and the artwork. In this picture we were all listening to the speaker and studying some of his monotype landscapes. So, what d’ya think? Monotypes monotyped. Is there a word for that?

Copper plate (plexiglass and zinc plates were also available); oil-based printing ink; Arches printing paper (dampened); thinner paper (forget the name – Japanese paper I think) for printing a ghost image; printing press.
