screenprinting class: part 4

robot heart screenprint

This last weekend I finished my second poster print for the screenprinting class I'm taking at The University of the Arts here in Philadelphia. The plan was to do a complicated print similar to my race car collages I made earlier in the year. However, Tuesday rolled around and I wasn't going to have it ready. So, as one does when one is unprepared, one makes a robot.
This design is one I made a year ago when I was first thinking about getting posters made. The heart comes from an old anatomy book my sister found somewhere in Arkansas.

The first color to go down was the light blue. The orange was next. A week or so later I printed the red line-art of the heart, and then last was the real warm grey part of the robot. You can kind of see where the grey overlaps the blue and makes it a darker, cooler grey.

I'm selling these things on Etsy. I haven't counted the editions yet, but I suspect there are fifteen or so good prints. If you want it, go get it!

    I love your site.

    Do you have a cartoon where money is falling down from the sky? On top of a person.
