the “in” crowd…

This past weekend I decided to venture on a quest to figure the whole registration thing out with screen printing. It seemed simple enough, I just never really gave it a try. All of my previous prints never really required registration and the ones that did, I just eyeballed it because I was only making one or two prints.

For this print I kept it two colors. I assembled the image using various drawings from my sketchbook that I have been wanting to use for some time now. The registration went rather smoothly thanks to some pointers from Sean Tucker, but the fact that my squeegee was not big enough turned it into a rather frustrating experience. Luckily in the end, I was able to obtain a larger squeegee and finish the prints. I kept the run fairly small and ended up with about 7 decent prints. 

Also, be sure to check out Art Walk downtown tomorrow night! Jimmy will apart of AIGA’s Atomic Sketch in the Old Library, and our friend Karen Dessire will be showing her work at the Printing.com store.
