totally random

side note, i stumbled across the artist Octavio Ocampo and am in love! isn't this gorgeous? this is the feeling i wanted in my bees project. i wonder what technique he used.

more screenprinting

this image was origionally a photoshop dvd cover design project. the way i executed it however screamed screenprint-me, so when i had shannons screen class i decided to redo it traditionally. this is the result!

Bear Arms

‘Bear Arms,’ 1 of 9 prints, and adaptation of the Hug the Bear logo and a project in Shannon’s printmaking class. While on the subject of bears, the image was originally inspired by my friends dad who recently passed away. He was a man who always had an open heart and open arms.
