Upcoming Workshop & New Doodles

Sunday, I am taking a Screen Printing Intensive at 3rd Ward in Brooklyn. After dabbling in stamping and stenciling, I’m really excited to try this method of printmaking. I’m not sure what to expect, so I’m going in with an open mind. It may be difficult or easy; I may love it or hate it. Either way, its something I’ve wanted to try so I’m finally taking the time to do it!

I need to bring in a design for the class, but I still haven’t settled on one. They suggest staying away from anything with really fine lines. I also have to keep in mind that the design will be printed in one color, just like when I did the stamping, so I think I may want to start out with something simple. I have been doing a lot of doodling lately, so I thought I would share some of those sketches with you.

Reindeer

Reindeer I drew a few years ago…I thought he might be cute on a card

I also want to try stamping words on the front of a card:

Before I make the stamp, however, I have to flip the writing so that it prints the correct way. If I made a stamp from the above image, it would print backwards on my card. So my stamp will look like this:

It’s getting down to the wire and I really need to decide what I am going to print on Sunday. Please feel free to leave any and all feedback/suggestions in the comments! I’m open to everyone’s opinion 🙂

I hope you all have a great weekend! Enjoy the Christmas spirit that’s in the air!!

Stay Curious! xo…Alane
