jazz set




I recently did a set of hand-pulled silkscreens for a gallery show I had here in Cleveland. One of the themes I worked with was music. I am a huge music fan, so it often shows up in my personal work. The images are approximately 8 X 10, and printed on fine quality cream Rives BFK paper in runs of 20. I love the silkscreening process-you never know exactly how the colors will turn out or exactly how each one will register. These are scans, so the color isn't 100 percent accurate and some of the nuances you get with printmaking doesn't show up. I was very happy with how these turned out and the show was a great success.

These are outstanding Michael. I love the design and colors. I bet they look amazing in person...I'm a big fan of silkscreen.

My favorite (even though I love all three) is the second image.

Oh, and I'm glad to hear the show was a success (no surprise to me). Congratulations.

Vanessa Brantley Newton said...

Hey Michael,
I work in both photoshop and Corel. Corel is my favorite. I have been using it for years and just upgraded to Corel painter 11. They have a sidebar with all kinds of pens and I love the one called," Graphic pen" It's taken some time to get it where I want it. It was a real pain in the patootie, but if you mess with the preferences and pressure and jitter it will have you that kind of broken line like a real quill type pen. You can download the program for free at Corel. It's a trial, but I think you will enjoy it! I will contact you via email to get the print. Thanks so much!
