Voodoo Catbox Printmaking Process

Howdy Folks.  Hope y’all are keeping well and hanging in there.  Like a lot of others, we’ve seen jobs & events we take for granted go by the wayside. So in order to keep busy and stay focused, we figured it might be a good idea to be constructive and make some prints having to do with political or social issues.  We also thought it might be nice to document the process of making a screen print.

Think of this as a good platform for sharing information on screen printing and also an opportunity to show some contempt for ol’ Kranky Klown.

We broke this down into 4 segments.  The 1st of which covers the initial concept sketch and transforming that drawing into a scratchboard illustration, which will be the focus of the print.

Part 1 – Illustration
Part 2 – Color Separations
Part 3 – Preparing Screens
Part 4 – Printing

Please enjoy, and if you have any questions please don’t hesitate to ask.
