Print show @ Pony Club Gallery

A few posts ago, I showed how I blocked out the different layers for a screen print. Here's what they look like as they're actually being printed in color:Layer one
Layer twoLayer three (and my thumb!)
and layer can tell I took this last photo on a different day, because the light's totally different. inconsistency!
I ended up not being totally happy with how the layers came together, so I decided to add hand drawn elements to each print. There's 15 total. The first 10 will be on sale at the Pony club Gallery print show. The opening goes from 6-10ish pm on July First, at 625 NW Everett #105 Portland, OR. .Check out the awesome show card by cartoonist Lilli Carre:


  1. Theo, thanks for posting this! It's very interesting to see how this all comes together. What kind of paper is this printed on? (sorry for the questions, hope you don't mind!)

  3. Robin-They were printed on some heavystock brown paper I found at a paper store. I don't remember the brand. It was typical 8 1/2 X 11 paper but I had it trimmed down to 8x10 so it would be a standard frame size. I just kind of print on whatever seems nice. You can also use the paper color to your advantage.
