Oberlin Blogs

Blog Post Turned Portfolio.

Karl Orozco ’13

I've fallen in love.

With a medium.

I'm referring to silkscreening. Not some girlfriend who has connections with dead spirits that I've met at Oberlin. Really, who do you think I am?

But yes, I've admittedly spent a whole lot of time in the silkscreening studio making posters for organizations and events around campus. And, well, I figure some people reading this blog would like to see some of the work I've done... right?

I've stressed this enough throughout my blog posts, but I really, really enjoy silkscreening. In fact, I'll be interning at a silkscreening studio over the summer! The studio, named the Bread and Butter Collective, is a new, small silkscreening studio located in Queens, NY that was started last year by a group of Oberlin students and alums. Neat, eh?

Also, another goodie: Here's a video of Sarah, David and me in Chicago over spring break. Specifically, it's a video of Sarah and me getting a piercing and a tattoo respectively. Not really relevant to anything Oberlin, other than the fact that we are all Oberlin students.

Finally, I updated my website! www.karlorozco.com. This time, it should (hopefully) work across all browsers and platforms. Hurrah!

I really like the use of lines in the Dandelion Romp poster. Plus the Pimp My Bike Ride is just awesome! Good work.

Hey Karl,

You're famous...congrats on the NY Times appearance! Know that your blog entry on the whole t-shirt design process was greatly enjoyed. I'll look forward to checking out the designs at the bookstore when I'm in town for commencement next weekend :)

Your stuff is sooo good! I'm a prospective student, and I'm really curious about studio art at Oberlin. Do you think Oberlin is the best liberal arts college to study studio art?
