On Friday I spent my first day printing at Megalo, our public access print facility, for the first time in over a year. There have been big changes as they have recently moved to a newly renovated building. It’s full of light and very pleasant to work in.
I had no specific plan of what i would print so I decided to play around. I’m pretty much a screen printer, but I like to be fairly unstructured in my print making approach. I generally print with dyes rather than pigments which allows for some very free image making and the ability to use some water colour techniques as well.
To make things a bit easier for myself I chose to print on A4 size sheets of Stonehenge paper. I also decided that I would just do whatever doodles came into my mind, no preciousness allowed. Here are two of my prints.
I’m really pleased with the outcomes and I’m looking forward to my next printing session. I thought I handled the long days printing quite well – that is until I got home and promptly fell asleep in front of the TV.
