Happy Holidays!

Hope everyone has a safe and happy holiday season!

Cinderfella Finish

I was really happy with how Cinderfella turned out!  A great ending to a great semester and fun series.

Here are my top two prints:

Cinderfella Process

The last and final print in my series, Cinderfella!  It feels great and a bit strange to finally finish this series, though altogether very rewarding.

Little Merman Finished

I tried to approach the Little Merman prints in a more printmakery way and embrace some of the really neat textures that screenprinting is capable of.  I thought it would be a good chance to try and achieve a frosted look, since the setting for Little Merman is now in the arctic.  Later I also realized that I chose to use a more muted color palette for the one fairy tale where the protagonist does not get the guy and suffers a tragic fate.
