Skullhouettes

By Erika Moen on April 24, 2012


You guys, I am so excited to have teamed up with my fellow studiomate and brother-from-another-mother, Dylan Meconis, to create these gooooooorgeous silhouette screenprints!

They are a limited edition of 20, measuring 7.5″ x 11″ on Arches 250gm Buff paper that is 100% cotton, acid-free and buffered with a pronounced grain, deckled edges and a lush, buttery-creamy color.


A few weeks ago I approached Dylan (not difficult, since our tables face each other at Periscope Studio) about printing a design for her, as long as she could keep it to one color.


After some thought, she came up with the elegant design you see above! You can always count on Dylan to bring the class. And the macabre.


This was, by far the easiest screenprinting session I’ve had yet (– aside from a few drops of blood. But hey, it wouldn’t be art if someone didn’t bleed for it, right? Or something?), from set-up to final product, I was done in about 2 hours. A new record for me!


Just like with my own new print, The Octopus Lady in Profile, these Skullhouettes (Dylan has always been better at titles than me) will be released this weekend at Table B-15 during the Stumptown Comics Fest. Any copies not sold at the convention will be released online later!
