New art process: Serigraphy

Screen printing is by no means "new;" however, the process is new to me. I am taking a screen printing class at the UCSD Crafts Center. Below are my first two projects.

This one was made using paper as a blocker for the ink and the one below uses rubylith to create the image, lots of exacto blade magic.

The Loveswell print is actually a small note card. We were allowed to make six prints so four went out as invitations/reminders for the theater production. I kept one and the other I sent to John Forston, the actor of the performance, as encouragement.

The Stargazing print is based upon a sketch I did for a commission.
