PROCESS: Screenprinting "Flesh is Flesh"

I've been really enjoying screenprinting and have been able to use it for my thesis as well! I designed this print to be 3 colors but it ended up being 5. I haven't quite finished the print, but here are some shots from my late night print run last week. I ran into a good number of problems that I needed to trouble shoot this time around. The ink was drying in my screen, not coming through in spots, not the right color, etc. but in the end I had a few solid prints. My ceramics teacher has a good theory about why skills we are learning come so easily one week and then are almost impossible the next. She says that new skills need a week to go from short-term memory to long-term memory. So whenever things like this happen I just brush it off with the confidence that the next time I try things will be in my long-term memory and I'll be much better!


  1. I love it too. we were taught it a few weeks ago on my graphic design course. its just looks and feels great to produce work this way!

  2. I'd love to do screen printing!

  3. Wow, this looks super exciting! I know you're not done with it yet, but I love the no-text version...those little blue vascular lines on the lungs really hit the spot. :)
