New Toy

My old website was disabled, and is now down. Probably for the best since I couldn't really update it anyway (stupid Homestead won't build a platform for Macs...)

Anyway. In the meantime I have a new toy to help with my Christmas Cards this year. More on those later.

UPDATE: Okay, well it's been a long time since i did screen printing and most of it came back to me, albeit not right at the onset. Also, I had apparently forgotten how messy screenprinting is. But it seemed to work fairly well - if not perfect. I think with a little more practice and a less crude positive image (I used cut paper stencils here) the results will be fantastic.

Here are the printed faces of the cards. The cut paper method is quick and dirty. Emphasis on dirty. It's prone to squeegeeing bits of ink out onto the underside of the screen, and to ghosting certain parts of the images. But overall it's a hell of a lot more dramatic than my handwriting, and creates a nice contrast to the deep chocolaty paper.
