Making copies...

A few years back I took a class in screenprinting. I enjoyed the class but it seemed like the type of pastime that needed space and a reason to do it.

Now that I have a workshop/studio out back, I decided to try it again. Being Dutch, and not wanting to spend a great deal of money, it has taken me all summer to slowly accumulate the items needed for screenprinting success.

Last Saturday, I "burned" my first usable screen (there was a previous attempt the week before that went wrong when spraying the emulsion out).

Was there any question what this screen was? That's right, I am perfecting homemade Big Blue t-shirts. This design shows the bus in all his glory. Also, for those of you who came with Big Blue, there is a newly designed CD sleeve for the road mixes that I am starting to make for you guys. The title of the CD? Big Blue has made you a mixtape.

All this really means is I have another project on my hands. But this is fun and I can't wait to have a giant screenprint of a VW bus above the couch.

Stay tuned for the first poster, t-shirt and mixtape giveaways!

Who loves ya, baby? Big Blue does.

The screens being "burned".



Think: Big Blue bar towels.
