THE MAGIC OF BEFORE-AND-AFTER

Posted by John Reynolds on

OOR WULLIE, BEFORE AND AFTER

I love a before-and-after comparison. Perhaps it's something to do with a sense of development, of change. Perhaps it's like the sense of progress that a gardener gets when they review the growth their plants have made.

And with this progression from blank sheet to first colour separation to second colour separation, there's something extra with a screenprint - there's a sense of fulfilment, of becoming what you had the potential to become.

Anyway, to celebrate this evolution, here's a series of photo combinations showing how the screenprint develops - how the ink is layered.

Here's it's after the printing of the red layer and before the application of the black ink.

I'm also enjoying the use of the character's name as an important part of the screenprint's composition. I'm planning more. Watch this space.

... and of course, to buy and for further details of my screenprints, go to https://thecomicartwebsite.com/…/prod…/oor-wullie-celebrates
