Silkscreen book #2

Finally uploading photos of my second book from silkscreen class! It's actually bound accordion book style but I couldn't take a photo of all the pages pulled out without exposing my messy bedroom in the background so... hoohoo. I'm more happy with the cover and the binding than the actual images :( oh why is binding always more fun than printing...whyyy... But I think I learned a whole lot about silkscreening from printing this book. A lot of it was probably stuff I would've known if I had just done a lot more printing, but all throughout the semester I was so caught up in creating perfect pieces that I was afraid to just print stuff. I need to let gooooooo, let looose~

SOI Reception

Friday was the opening reception for the Society of Illustrators 2013 student competition! It was so packed...with both people AND amaaaazing artwork! so much talent.. SO MUCH TALENT EVERYWHERE! It was super interesting, and I was in awe the whole time I walked around the exhibition. I was busy writing down names until I realized I had the catalog with all the artists and their illos haha

The show is up until June 5th at the Society of Illustrators on 63rd st~
