Printmaking <3

30 Nov

I love printmaking – more than drawing and more than painting. I love the process of trying to create the perfect poster and the imperfections that are inevitably in each unique print. These imperfections can’t really be fixed, they just are. Imperfections give printmaking character; imperfections are beautiful.

My love for printmaking has been rekindled in the last couple of years; I’ve created several linocut prints and silkscreen posters. Here are some prints I made over the summer for friends.

I made these silkscreen posters for my friend Whitney as a housewarming present.

I made the below linocut prints for my friend Karey, who owns a cute little clothing boutique in Regina, Saskatchewan called Stella and Sway. I really love how these prints turned out. The inspiration for these prints came from vintage Vogue sewing patterns I found on Flickr.

If you are ever in Regina, make sure you pay Karey a visit!
