A reason to print

A reason to print

So the whole printing on paper experiments keep getting better, but if you’re learning anything new, the best way to do things is to have an actual project.

When my friend Heather said she’d love to use this photograph for her upcoming percussion recital, the gears started turning.

After lunch I got with Tom and we decided to try pushing some ink through a screen using the image. (He did all the hard parts, I just tried to be helpful and complained we didn’t have enough shop towels.)

A few hours later we had a handful of off-center posters with minor alignment issues. Overall? A big win. Very excited. And looking forward to Heather’s recital!

And last but not least, hidden in the corner, a little picture of one of Heather’s kitties, because cats make everything better.

[…] Here’s some behind the scenes of the whole process. […]

Excellent poster and a fantastic use of that shot, alignment issues or no. Also, “percussion recital” just sounds boss. Congrats y’all!
