For those of you in the Philadelphia area, I highly recommend coming out to tomorrow evening's reception for the group show "Mythology and the Forgotten Gods" happening at Phantom Hand Gallery at 6th and South Street in Philly.
I have two pieces in the show, both screen printed pieces with water color worked into them, and I know several other artists who's work for this show will be stellar.
Check out my process for one of my submissions below!
Firstly I work up my dip-pen and ink lines
Then it gets scanned in and cleaned up in Photoshop, taking time to arrange the composition the way I like it.
I get prints on clear acetate made so it can be burned into a silk screen
After the screen has been burned and washed out
Finished piece on watercolor paper with minimal washes applied.
The show will be running from Friday, March 23rd 2012 (opening reception from 6 - 10 PM) until April 23rd (at least). Other great work from local Philadelphia cartoonists, painters and illustrators are currently on display at Phantom Hand as well. And almost everything is on sale at really reasonable prices.
See you there!
