I attended the Frogman’s Print Workshop for the first time this summer in Vermillion, South Dakota. It was a fabulous experience and I look forward to attending again next summer. I was enrolled in Ryan O’Malley’s session on Mezzotint printing. Other instructor’s at the workshop for Session One included: Melissa Harshman, Dennis McNett, Andrew Kosten, Mary Jones, Beauvais Lyons, Lenore Thomas, and Jason Ruhl.

During Frogman’s Print Workshop 2012 Dennis McNett’s class created The Unibeagloyote of Vermillion.

From Dennis McNett’s Flicker Stream of the The Unibeagloyote of Vermillion:

“The Wolfbat tribe continues to grow and migrate across the continents. Their last stop was in Vermillion,SD where the tribe met with the Eagle, Bear, Coyote, and Unicorn clans of the Wolfbat. These clans with their combined essences…. bear (strength), Coyote (camaraderie), Eagle (freedom), and Unicorn (creativity) … conjured the great Unibeagloyote to disperse these essences to the Wolfbat tribe. This was a collaborative project for the Frogman’s printmaking workshop in Vermillion, SD July 2012”

The beast was filled with fireworks and ignited for a spectacular performance at The River. Monica Marie Garcia sung at the bonfire. It was a resonating experience!
