screen printing is definitely my favorite class i have ever taken. and after much hard work and some really great times i am very happy to share images of my final project. the requirements were to use an art movement before the 1950’s as an inspiration point and create 3 pieces; a linear pattern, an all over pattern (1 and a half yards each) as well as an engineered design based on your inspiration. i started out by looking at art deco jewelry as well as coastal art deco architecture. the patterns are printed on a cotton/linen blend and the engineered design is on a cotton broad cloth.
now its time for advanced computer aided design for surface design, advanced fiber arts 1, and some american literature circa 1900-1945. Its the beginning of the end, fall quarter senior year. i’m excited.
i’ve been working on a project for my screen printing class in which we have to create and alter ego and design a pattern and print yardage based on that person. mine is maxine goldstein and you can get to know her better via her myspace page (yes, we had to make the alter ego’s myspace pages). this yardage was printed on white linen and done as a three color separation using only one screen.
i also printed some onesies with my friend stacey/wei wei for one of our favorite professors and his wonderful wife who will be having a baby boy very very soon. mine are the first three on the left..
i am SO smitten with screen printing…
i finished printing my first ever yardage today. 3yards of 100% natural linen hand printed 2 color pattern. there’s a few inconsistencies, but for a first go, i’m pretty pleased. also glad it still looks somewhat hand drawn. i may do another few yards in a different color way..we’ll see…
because i feel like i need a ribbon in my hair today..here is a pattern that i designed this winter thats inspired by a vintage fabric swatch and baroque style..i have a thing for marie antoinette style hair do.dads..
my first screen printing project was all about getting used to printing and maneuvering screens and mixing inks and experimenting a little. im using lots of different papers, and after i get my samples back im planning on turning these into something else, maybe some sort of collage.. anyways here are some of the fresh prints..not the greatest, but contact paper isnt the cleanest either..good thing i have 9 more weeks to get this down…
just discovered this awesome brainstorming tool called spezify, check it out. also so very glad to start my weekend, since there are no friday classes here at the savannah college of art and design. i’ll be updating with my logo project soon, and in the meanwhile happy weekend!
i just could not get to sleep last night..maybe if i make/had these sheets i designed and texture mapped this winter in c.a.d. surface design it would help get me to dream land faster..
all three sets were based completely off old modest mouse albums. i lost a lot of sleep over this project to get it done early to go see modest mouse a few nights before turning this in, completely worth it, if you ever get the chance, i’d highly recommend seeing them live.. check out one of my favorite songs of theirs here.
