I'm very exited to show this video that shows a little bit of the screen printing process. Some of you you might know that apart from printing my own illustrations, I also work on commissioned projects. Here is the most technically challenging I had until now.
A few months ago Firmamento, a clothing brand from Barcelona asked me if I could do all-over prints on T-shirts. I don't know if you ever did screen-printing or if you know a little bit how it works but this is not as simple as it seems. It meant that I needed to use a 1 meter size screen. Until now I only used screens that are quite easy to handle myself but for this one I really needed some help.
Together with Spritz Design we decided to accept the challenge. The complexity (apart from the size) came from printing on non-flat surface (the stiches on the fabric) and avoiding the ink to go through... Also once we lifted the screen we couldn't rectify anything. One-shot, that was all!
Fortunately at Firmamento they know well what hand-made screen printing means. They like the "artisan" touch and the fact that it is not printed by machines. Thanks to projects like these I can keep on investigating. This is one of the thing I love most in screen printing is that every project comes with new goals and it's a never-ending learning process.
