From Sketchbook to Screen Print

Sometimes it can be a long process getting a design from my sketchbook to a finished screen print. Inspired by a coffee pot depicted on an antique Turkish tile I started working on ideas for a Middle Eastern style coffee pot print. I drew the design earlier this year but didn't manage to start the black and white artwork until summer. From there it's usually pretty straight forward; the black and white artwork is used to create a transparent positive for each colour. I then expose the positives onto screens ready for printing. I stuck to my original idea and used four colours... amazingly they turned out quite similar to the ones I used in my sketchbook!
