Screen printing has been a passion of mine, that has influenced a lot of my design. I enjoy the trial and error process and physically working with my hands to create a final product, and serves to really get me off the computer and embrace the imperfections of the process. things never come out the right color, sometimes your screen develops imperfections, and sometimes the ink doesn't sit quite right, all of these add to the design and gives it such character and I feel it really adds to it's overall design.

Where is my mind 
THIS WAS MY FIRST SCREEN PRINTING PROJECT, WHICH UTILIZED THE IMPERFECTIONS OF SCREEN PRINTING, INCLUDING CHROMATIC ABERRATION TO GIVE THIS GLITCHING EFFECT. THE ILLUSTRATION WAS ALSO DONE BY ME, WITH THE TEXT TAKING INSPIRATION FROM THE SONG "WHERE IS MY MIND" BY THE PIXIES. I ALSO UTILIZED A SCANNER FOR THE HEAD, WHICH WAS ORIGINALLY A NORMAL ILLUSTRATION OF A WOMANS FACE THAT WAS SHIFTED WHILE THE SCANNER WAS SCANNING.

Don't fall down
THIS SCREEN PRINT WAS MADE AS A SMALL POSTER THAT WOULD BE INCLUDED IN A LARGER PROJECT CALLED GONZO SKATEBOARDS. IT UTILIZED PHOTOGRAPHY, AND THE CMYK COLOR SCHEME AND HALFTONES WHICH WERE COMBINED TO MAKE THE INITIAL PRINT. ALL OF THIS PHOTO WORK, PLUS THE SLIGHT CHROMATIC ABERRATION WAS ALL DONE IN ADOBE PHOTOSHOP. I THEN LAYERED WHITE ILLUSTRATIVE DOODLES OVER THE PICTURE, WHICH IS IN LINE WITH THE GONZO SKATEBOARD BRANDING, WHICH GAVE THE PRINT ITS FINAL LAYER OF
