I finished those birth announcements for my little nephew Oscar I was talking about earlier! Above is a scan of the actual screenprint. Below is what your experience must've been like if you got one in the mail. (photo credits: Jenny C.)
And so you can judge how well I captured Oscar's likeness, here is a reference photo. Okay - you caught me - I'm only posting it because it is so cute.
And to get back to the nuts-and-bolts stuff that is the bread-and-butter of this blog (sorry fellas!) here is a color test I did when mixing the screeprint inks. I never quite got the orange as transparent as I wanted but I guess there's always next time.
