How a handpulled screenprint is made - layering the ink one by one, with an example from the Comic Art Website stable, the Scottish icon Oor Wullie, showing the red layer and then the black on top of it.
Oor Wullie is a great subject to screenprint. The original draughtsman, Dudley D Watkins, was also the first to draw Desperate Dan in the Dandy and Lord Snooty in The Beano. Panels have great composition, so it's relatively easy to pick some to stand alone as screenprints.
Dennis the Menace, icon of The Beano and hero to thousands of children, makes for some dramatic screenprints. Printer John Patrick Reynolds focuses on the character and the prints he has made using the images, all approve by Dundee publisher DC Thomson.
