  3. Can't wait to see the final print. You make the whole process seem so straightforward - just take a sketch and hey presto! I know nothing is further from the truth - or is it?

  4. Ah thanks guys, it's a real boost to hear your comments. There is a bit more work involved John, I have to draw separate artworks in black for each colour separation, then copy them onto acetate to make each screen, and mixing the colours can be quite trickie too! than again:)

  11. Gorgeous - I love seeing how it progresses from sketch to print. The pattern on her skirt is my favourite part... I am ALL about semi-circles at the moment!
