Its been awhile since the last process thread, but since these are always fun to make and show the steps behind the creation of art and turning them into silkscreens, here is a new one.
Note: I will be adding an archive to my site soon of past process threads (blade runner, tyto alba etc) and will include additional photos left out of the original process thread.
This thread will document "Lace Shawl" from pencils to the final print which is sized at 30" x 24".
So the image starts as a 14" x 11" drawing. On this particular image, I inked on top of the pencils which I try not to do anymore, as the paper absorbs a lot of oils from my hand and progressively becomes more and more difficult to ink. However with this image, I wanted to avoid the lightbox so the image doesn't turn out to dark as it does when inking over a backlit surface (which it did anyways but thats another story...).
Spending hours laying down additional details, at this point all of the details need to be penciled in before inking starts.
Put on some GYBE! albums and getting to work...
Here is a time-lapse video of the beginning of the inking process. Mind the post-metal tunes.
To be continued, time to sleep.
