Drawings for screen printing

From Manchester Art Gallery

I’m going to use these drawings for a series of screenprints.  I’ve started (and almost finished) the first one and after a few issues, have the next lot exposed and ready to be printed.  I’m using paper stencils for the background colours, so everything is a bit ‘off’ on purpose – I didn’t want it to be perfect and consequently, end up looking like it had been Photoshopped…

I’m off to Hot Bed Press in Salford tomorrow to start on the second image – I’ll try to remember to take pictures to show each stage…

I’m also going to start on a bigger drawing of Manchester City Centre – at the same scale but to encompass more.  I’ve been scouting around trying to take pictures from the tops of car parks but have so far been politely asked to remove myself from each one as I might hurt myself or something similar (?!).  So remember everyone – taking a picture is MUCH more dangerous than parking your car.  Seriously though – apparently I need to get permission from the owners first.  I’ll let you know how I get on!
