here are some ‘Tiki Modern’ style prints I’ve been working on.
Above you can see some of the many sketches, variations and experiments I did, with different colours, patterns and facial styles.
Once I am happy with the drawing, I scan it and trace it digitally. You can see the final artwork below.
This print is available to buy at my Society 6 shop.
The next technique we learned in our screen printing class was photo stencilling.
You can turn almost any image into a photo stencil, but simple black and white images make it easy to produce a good stencil.
After some messing around in my sketchbook, I managed to scribble this on the back of an envelope.
I then traced it digitally and printed it onto tracing paper. You can use tracing paper or acetate as your ‘film positive’ to expose a screen.
Here are the final prints.
