Nothing More Artistic

Nothing More Artistic

Designed using Adobe Illustrator CC 2014. Hand silk screened on French Paper Company paper.

The Assignment: To learn about the traditional silk screen process, I designed and hand-printed a poster. Additional exercises were also completed to master the choke and trap processes of silk screening. My design includes a custom typeface that I created specifically for this project and highlights one of my favorite quotes.

The Challenges: Difficulties for this project included designing the typeface and physically printing it. Previously, I had done sketches of a similar face, so I had a starting point, but I had never digitized it. It a stretching experiment and I intend to take it further. Because the lines of the piece are thin, printing the piece–already a physically taxing activity–became more difficult. Through trial and error,  I did achieve several dozen good prints.
