The Peryton: Printmaking Techniques

In continuation of my Bestiary print making project, here are the last two I'll be doing for the time being. I've printed the Peryton as a Linocut and Screen print. They're pretty big, so excuse my photography.

I personally prefer the lino cut, I feel it suits the subject matter more.

A Company of Wolves

I've been rather lax on the blog recently. I'm extremely busy and am coming to the end of my MA...eeek! I think I'll probably have some kind of melt down over the next month.

Any way. here's some preliminary drawings for an upcoming screen print

The book of skulls....plagiarism?

I've put off writing this post for a while, but...what the hell!

I was recently bought The Book of Skulls as a present. It's a lovely book, full of lovely, lovely skull art. I highly recommend it...just look at the cover.

But imagine my surprise when I was flicking though it and came across this image.

(I can't find a better image online)

It looks remarkably similar to something I posted back in 2009. (his was made in 2011). it was part of a uni project, creating a theoretical fashion exhibition. Ours was looking at how woman altered their body shape through clothing to obtain grotesque shapes that were considered ideal at the time. The illustrations looked at what it would be like if these artifices would look like if the skeleton was actually altered.

This may all just be coincidence, but it's such strange subject matter that it seems too odd...

I've had instances before when I've seen things on clothing and magazines that looks similar and could be dismissed as coincidence, but this is just too weird.

Anyway, I should be in that awesome skull book.

The Enfield screenprint

As my bestiary project is primarily a project where I'm experimenting with print making, I've decided to turn some of them in to screen prints as well as lino prints. The first one I did was the Enfield.

I'm not massively happy with this, the colours came out less subtle than I was aiming for and the third layer doesn't show up enough, so a lot of the detail has been lost.
Most recently I've done the Peryton screen print which has been far more successful. I'll post it up later.

So, lino or screen print?
