The art of screen printing

Many of us spend hours, days, weeks and months working on a piece that'll just end up in the portfolio, or sitting on the hard disk of your computer. Well, why not set your baby free and transfer it across to a more tangible and fulfilling medium? A screen print is a beautiful solution compared with something like an inkjet output.

In this tutorial I'll explain some of the steps I used to create a piece for the London band Tunng, show how the poster was printed, and reveal how easy it is to transfer an image from your screen to your wall.

It was mostly trial and error before settling on the final design, which is always the case when you need to get approval from a band. But I always listen to a group's sounds and try to build a piece that sits nicely with them.
