print 'n stitch

very excited about my new skill with screen printing. for one of my classes, we had to make a two-sided card to give out to prospective students. one side of the card was to show them the kind of work they might be doing in our print department. the other side was to be an artist statement. on the one side i screen printed some organic shapes from things hanging around my studio. on the other side i stitched and drew on mylar and shot the screen through the mylar. then i used my sewing machine to stitch through the printmaking paper following the lines of the organic shapes. i made 100 of these guys. my first foray into such a large edition. very fun and satisfying.

i took a one-week intensive screen printing class last month with the GREAT kevin townsend. take a class with kevin if you get the chance! he is a fabo teacher!
