Grasshopper

glisic, 'grasshopper', 2015

 
A new print from a collection of screen prints inspired by insects and seasons.

I really enjoyed designing this image, particularly researching and sketching the many patterns and geometry of grasshoppers.

The final is a 27″ x 21″ three-color screen print on Stonehenge paper. It was initially hand drawn in pen and ink, then screen printed in a limited edition of 20. Close-ups and initial process roughs are below.
It is now available in my etsy shop :)

Cover Illustration for Penguin Books

I was excited to receive my copies of the recently published “The Book of Destruction” by Anand.

This is the first cover illustration I’ve done for Penguin Books and I’m very pleased with how it came out! The illustration is based on one of the stories in the book, The Tailor, in which elaborate outfits escape from a tailor’s shop and take over bodies, in a macabre, magical-realism sort of way.

The Story of Fidgety Philip: process

Here is the process from pencil to the final four-color screenprint of ‘The Story of Fidgety Philip’.

The story is about a boy who refuses to sit still at the dinner table, eventually grabbing at the tablecloth and knocking everything to the floor. This page faces the text for a different story in the book.

More Struwwelpeter printing process

Since the transparencies have been coming out spotty, I’ve been painting them in with india ink. It works really well and I prefer it to the Super Black markers because the markers tend to sticky and cling to the screen, leaving residue behind.
