Screenprinting Project 5.

My 5th screenprinting project is due Tuesday, and I just finished it this morning. This project is a portfolio trade, so everyone in the class will get one copy of everyone's prints. I did an edition of 20 + 3 artist proofs. Finished paper size is 11x11.

I had good intentions of taking pictures after each layer, but I forgot to do that for the last 3 or 4 layers because I was in a groove this morning.

From beginning to end:

 *insert a few layers here*

I'm pretty happy with how this turned out. If you're wondering, the first few layers are knit stitch shapes, and the circular things are abstracted yarn balls. I need to get it properly photographed so I can include it in my portfolio exit review next week (ahhh!).

Also, I noticed today that my third screenprinting project was in one of the cases outside the class today. I don't know how long it's been up, haha.

P.S. Are you celebrating Wovember? It's still a bit too warm for the most part for a lot of wool here in Texas, but I wore (handknit) wool socks today!

  1. Oh my goodness, someone else who makes crafty screen prints! I think if you had used more colours it would have been easier to appreciate all the different layers in this piece.
    I also find the second layer (with just the background and initial knit stitches) is the most appealing for me. It's the simplest, and because of that it seems to stand out more.
    It's interesting how you've made the stitches look quite painterly too, like brush strokes. It makes the shapes quite enigmatic at first.
    Hope to see more soon,
