screen printed book

The Fabric Merchant’s Son is a 7 layer silkscreen print that ended me. Please zoom in for details. The children’s book (that I’ll finish over the summer) is about a boy (Purl), his mother, and two goats as they travel through the mountains. 

Silkscreen is a very labor intensive process involving calluses and arm workouts! This took 15 hours of manual labor (after the initial 13 hours of drawing). Below the cut for original digital piece

Sorry i haven’t posted in a while… been buried in work for my degree show! 

Here’s the long awaited finished book covers for “His Dark Materials” by Philip Pullman I’ve been working on since march! What do you think of them? Would be great to hear people’s comments? :D

They’re made with layers of laser cut buckram, glow-in-the-dark screen prints for the “Dust” elements, gold leaf and a whole lot of sweat and blood (kinda literally…gave myself a couple nasty cuts with my craft knife a few times along the road). So glad its done now! The inside covers have a few interesting illustrations spray painted onto them for each book. You can see the black and white digital illustrations on one of the photos i took.

If you fancy coming to see the books in person to check out the glow-in-the-dark and the inside spray paintings, as well as some of my other original hand cut papercuts, the exhibition will be open to the public every day from 10:00-17:00 until 15th June! Free Entry!
