I've been a very bad blogger lately. It was a very busy semester, but I shant bore you with excuses.Lucky for those of you who are interested in looking at the things I do, I was busy because I was making art. So here's some of that. I think instead of dumping everything into one blog, I'll just let this be with a couple of screenprints.
Number one, Maturation.
This print was done with 7 layers. One of them (the pink background) was a watercolor monoprint layer. I repeated the same idea for each print in the edition, repainting every other print, but some of the backgrounds were ghost prints, and are much less vibrant. I like both looks just fine, but they certainly vary.
Number two, Bus Stop.
Still, I'm really interested in how people react when we see other people suffering with severe emotional turmoil. Sometimes, it's the only way to make the connection you need to, I've found.
This print was also 7 layers, but in many of them I sponged off the ink and let the screen dry, then filled in areas with screen filler. I then printed the same stencil again with the same ink, making a darker shade of the same color, and giving some nice subtle changed that implied shadows and patterns.
I'll probably blog again very soon with some shameless begging for you to buy some art from me at deeply discounted prices, so keep your eyes open! I just may do that tomorrow. But alas, now it is time for me to sleep.
