This piece was done for my illustration class. The image was first created digitally, then outputted as a screen printed poster, which is three colors. I've known about the screen printing process for awhile now, but this was my first time going through the whole process and doing it with my own hands. You really do learn to appreciate the quality and craftsmanship of screen printed posters made by big name artists after trying to do it yourself. There was a lot of trial and error and a lot of messed up prints. I decided to make a small run of 12 to test the waters, but only 6 prints came out looking decent. It was a good learning experience overall, and I plan on printing some more of my stuff in the future.
