Today I took a class in screen printing and burned my first screen. It is from an image of graffiti I found when I was in Paris in 2007. Besides a little screen filler needed for the mouth, to articulate it better, I think it turned out well.
Next week I will be screening this image on fabric, starting out with some simple materials like tshirt jersey, canvas, and maybe oversized notecards. It is sure to be a lot messier than today. The ink will be passing through the white sections of the screen. (first photo above) I am so excited to experiment with this process and the possibilities for using it in my art, printing on fabric for costumes, and making gifts.
