Silk Screen Class!

Sacred Octopus Silk Screened Print
Trixie and I are taking a silk screening class together– it’s my first time doing this sorta thing!

Here’s just the orange ink pulls before I added the yellow line work. You can see Trixie’s hands in the back there, silk screening onto paper bags she’ll be giving away/selling at the Stumptown Comics Fest this weekend!

Out of eight prints (so far), only two came out basically perfectly, three more were “eh, close enough”, and three I’ll have to write off as “Welp, I’m learning”

I’m planning on doing a run of 20, hopefully available in time to sell at the Stumptown Comics Fest (table C-23)
