It has been a long while since I have had anything new to post. My job started eating up too much of my personal time and was leading nowhere, so I no longer work there and I am now focusing on making things.
On top of all that I have also moved to a new studio with twice the space, I hope to continue the Dodos, while getting more elaborate pieces done and out and up around the city. I have found quite a few places that are in need of some cheering up. On a sad note since the Super Bowl was here this year the city went through and pretty much cleaned up most of what I had pasted, so starting from scratch again.
I am happy to have the time I need now and the new space and hope to move forward with some new work
I have nothing of note to show lately. But it is a New Year with a new direction. I hope to have some new things posted up in the next month. Hard to have a job and get anything done for yourself at times.
I haven't posted in a bit. The weather has been shitty and is only getting worse. I was going to use these winter months to focus my creative process a bit and have a bunch of new stuff for spring. Though my friends in France say that winter is the best time to go out because no one is out in the streets. So we'll see. I have new ideas and my images will change rapidly from what I have been doing. So If you have passed by my spot and want more updates, sorry, they will probably be spars for a few months while get my act together.
I divide the paper up and cut it down to size using a t-square and exacto blade
repeat until I have 50 sheets
This was my first time using photo emulsion to make my screen. So I hand painted onto acetate my image to be burnt into the screen.
Image burnt into my nice new aluminum screen (no more cheap speedball crap screen). I chose this method instead of the stencil like the skull prints because I wanted to try a new technique and I wanted a semi permanent screen for printing. I spread the emulsion with a squeegee, hence the sloppiness, kinda wish I had bought a scoop coater, but in the end it all worked fine.
Plain paper in.
Dodo comes out
Repeat 50 times. Probably should invest in a drying rack but for now I just tape them to the wall to dry
Finally take my blade and kiss cut each one to shape and they are ready for pasting.
