Foxy Fun Finished

So here are some of the finished foxes from my last post. The screen I had made to complete my fox blew out except for a perfectly round area in the middle during my last class, so I scrapped the idea of layering prints and just decided to draw on them with colored pencil.



I think they turned out pretty neat, here are some individual shots.






I definitely plan to do some experimenting with screen printing on my own. I bought some screens, emulsion and inks, and my sweet husband offered to make a light box and printing station to fit whatever space we decide to use for it.

I ran across this lovely photo the other day while surfing the web, from Jin Kim's sewing/crafting studio space Common Thread. A sewing studio with a screen printing area... so darling and not all industrial looking. Complete with cat bowl, a woman after my own heart. This would be an amazing space, I'm so inspired!

  3. love it! Your illustration is so sweet. I've been doing home screen printing myself. I have a make shift studio in my home, but I would love to have the studio from Common Thread! It takes a little, but you'll get the hang of it in no time :)
