Unique screenprint

Unique screenprint

I sometimes make screenprints of my favourite illustrations. Screenprinting is not a digital or machine produced print. It is a very time consuming, but ultimately satisflying, way of printing layers by hand through large silk screens. My prints are often 4 or 5 layers, each layer a different colour.

This print of Iris and the Lion is printed in 3 colours and black, making the brown and the green by overlapping the other colours. I love this process, it reminds me of children's books of the 1940's and 50's which were often printed using colour separation.

This print is a limited edition of 10, but each one is a unique artwork, as I have also drawn into the print using crayons and ink.

Please email me here if you would like to buy one. I have 4 left.
