|18" x 24" Six Color Screenprint (including Metallic Gold), Edition of 160|
For this one, I decided to use one of their songs, "The Man Who Would Speak True," as my inspiration (awesome song, by the way - check it). Here's a quick photo rundown of my process for creating the poster. As you'll see, after the sketch was finalized, I hand drew all the color separations, then compiled each part into the computer to create my films for screen printing. As usual, I printed them all by hand in my studio - I used Metallic Gold ink for part of the outline, and it looks so sick. You can see the metallic effect in the photos at the bottom.
|Sketching begins. A few other ideas tossed away after I settled on this one.|
|Enlarged pencil drawing, getting everything in place and ready for ink.|
|Inks for the shepherd and cloak, as usual done with my trusty #2 brush.|
|Lettering squigglies and shading drawn separately. I used a very soft pencil for both of these so that these particular parts would have some texture to them on the final print.|
