So using the silkscreen as a graphic element was what I originally intended- the trick is to determine what should go around it. Originally I was going to have one big image- which I will probably still do- but I had a comic laying near one of the silkscreen and I thought it looked cool- so I figured I'd try just doing a mini-comic surrounding the piece.

the first 10.

one thing to know. Silk Screening is Messy. like so nasty.
Whaddya all think? The alignment is off but it is next to impossible to do it with the method I was using. If I choose to do a reprint of this I would def. like to see each of the respective colors on a different screen- rather than on ONE big one, and having to tape-out the other 3 every time. it is amazing how different each one is.

UGH it was arduous but the results r awesome. They look really rich and vibrant in person. Maybe you will be the first to own one. HEEB.

Silkscreenin snitches!

here is a list of the pocess i go through to make my shiznit.
step 1. come up with a cool drawing.

step 2:

scan this drawing and color it in.

for this drawing I am going for a retro look- and so I changed this drawing into a bessier-dot style one (1950s ish).

I then seperate the four channels, each onto its own layer. Blue, Yellow, Red and Black. and print them on transparencies.

I then burn these into a photo-emulsion coated light-sensitive screen.n and spray out the areas (black) that didnt get exposed (and thereby arent stuck to the screen)

And WALAH a four-color screen. The next step I will apply the respective ink to the respective layer and go from there.

So i needed to get a test-page out of the way. basicaly i deceided on the paper-type and page size... although I might try a hot-press watercolor paper instead of the cold-press. The hot-press type has less bump- but this may result in less absorbancy of the watercolor... not sure, as I've never used it. It sells about 4$ a sheet- but thats for a pretty good sized one, and so if I cut them down to the size i'm using (12x18) then i can prolly get 4 out of each sheet. Not bad- cause it's gonna be Arches- top quality paper.

werd ya'll.

im also working on some fine art- stuff and deciding what should go in a show and some venues to pick. I also need to frame these darn things... $$$$$$$$$$$$$$.-which i don't have. so I might just keep building my own. for now tho- here is the test page.
