surprise: here’s the mini monstrosity that has eaten up my life for the last 3-4ish weeks. this was my very first attempt at an accordion book for school, all created through silkscreening. involved a lot of blood, sweat, tears, and a ton of ink. I am beyond satisfied with the final product and ready to go sleep for a million years ovo;;

bonus: a couple closeup shots!

She Dreams Sisyphus / Le Mythe de Sisyphe

80 x 52cm - silkscreen prints - contact me for more information.

KARBORN 2013

Sisyphus’s ceaseless and pointless toil as a metaphor for modern lives spent working at futile jobs in factories and offices. “The workman of today works every day in his life at the same tasks, and this fate is no less absurd. But it is tragic only at the rare moments when it becomes conscious.

how to make a screen print at home :

1. draw something you really like!

2. stretch an embroidery hoop with screen printing fabric

3. lay the screen on top of the sketch and carefully trace the sketch onto the screen with a pencil

4. use waterproof glue like mod podge to fill in all the areas that you do NOT want ink to go thru, also be sure to glue around the edge of the hoop to keep all the edges clean when you print and to help keep the screen in place

5. get some appropriate ink for the surface you are printing on and print it! HINT: you can use an expired credit card for a squeegee or an old electronic hotel room key works great too

PS don’t let your cat help no matter how much they want to
