MIXED MEDIA: GANESHA

This is a mixed media print titled "Ganesha". It was a single layer screen print featuring the outline of the Hindu god Ganesha. Hand-drawn lotus flowers, inscriptions in Devanagari script, and leaves were added for additional decoration, and the entire was coloured using watercolours. After scanning, the image was edited using Photoshop to obtain new, softer colour versions. Other colour versions are available on Flickr.

SCREEN PRINTING: FRENCH BULLDOG GOTHIC

This 6 layer screen print is titled French Bulldog Gothic. It is based on the painting American Gothic by Grant Wood, but with French Bulldogs instead of people as subjects. It took several weeks to complete due to limited time in the screen print studio, and also because registration for each layer was a total nightmare. I also created several mixed media versions of this print, which are available to view on Flickr.

MIXED MEDIA: THIS IS NOT ART (POP ART)

THIS IS NOT ART (POP ART) © GINGER NUT DESIGNS


This mixed media print, titled "This Is Not Art (Pop Art)" is an anti-bullfighting image based on the iconic black bulls (advertisements for Osborne sherry) that are found along most major Spanish motorways. The hand-drawn stencil is made up of the sentence "This Is Not Art" in different sizes to create the shape of a bull. It was printed using yellow ink on dark red card. After scanning, the image was edited using Photoshop to obtain three new colour versions (green and white, blue and white, and orange and white). These new versions were added to the original to create a quartered effect. Versions in Spanish and Catalan are available on Flickr.
