Print in Progress 2…

While you can pretty much get the idea of it here, I’ll be posting the final images and info in a few hours…

blackline transparency
Checking the transparency film over a partial print to make sure things are all there and positioned correctly.

The final burnt black-line screen.

enamel drying
Shiny shiny black enamel drying on the rack.

blue edition drying
Blue edition racked.

This was one of several quick notebook sketches of the concept.

…and here are images/info for the final print!

New print in progress…


Two weeks ago I took a trip down to the print shop to check in on a new print edition I’ve been working on. Here are a few shots of the work in progress, more photos and edition information tomorrow!

well oiled machine!
These guys are actually finely-tuned printing robots, there is no other explanation for their speed and accuracy.

gooey goodness
Mmm…goopy. The last step in the printing process is laying down the black enamel linework, this is where the image all finally comes together.

unintentional collaborations
Through test prints, screen clears and alignment checks the shop ends up with quite a few “unintentional collaborations” between artists. Some of these are really interesting.

This multi-tonne WWII era beast of a machine would not hesitate to cut your hand off, except that it fortunately requires two hands to operate.

Hmm what’s this? An alternate color for print club members? Shh, don’t tell them, they may not have opened their mail yet.

Three Strikes (Mega Munny)

See the Work In Progress over here

three strikes (heart in)

Here we come to the end of the Three Strikes project! I had hoped to make it a little fancier, but deadlines are deadlines and plans had to be adjusted accordingly. It turned out to be pretty simple and sweet, hopefully you enjoy it!

three strikes (full)

Come see it in person, Tonight through the 15th only! Sold already, sorry!

Three Strikes (Part 3/3)

(Part 2 can be found here)

Masking time! Here I’ve cut a small heart shape into an adhesive vinyl frisket. I protected the surrounding area and sprayed a few light coats.

…the fun continues after the cut!

Three Strikes (Part 2/3)

(Part 1 can be found here)

Work continued on the heart accessory as eyes and valves were sculpted out of resin directly onto the piece. Once set up and sanded down it was hit with a coat of primer, followed by a base coat of red. A darker red was lightly sprayed below the “mouth”.

…the fun continues after the cut!
