Drawing and Printing

Was a lot of experimenting this week but we are getting a handle on things.

Both of us were doing some tests with hand drawing using the looser tools–the china marker, the oil crayon and the india ink. India Ink + mylar = (bottom right corner.)

We got a decent burnout.

With the old growth text, Em mixed a blue-green and there was some colour theory going on in the printing. Also, she has some more work to do figuring out how to make hand lettering look the way she wants it–strokes felt a little on the light side when printed, too much like it was just written with a pen. Think the solution is to just keep drawing and printing.

Rod’s werewolf –which he had worked over from an original more technical design –turned out fun –again more colour theory with the red on different colours. It has a ‘fast and loose’ quality that we can live up to with our current printing setup.

  1. Hi Rod and Em,

    Glad to see that you are continuing to experiment! That is the way the most creative things happen. From different markers, films, and even colour mixing, it is looking great.
