ILLUSTRATION FRIDAY: Propagate
PROPAGATE: to cause (an organism) to multiply by any process of natural reproduction from the parent stock.
This is my first Illustration Friday for a long while. Now that my letterpress business is off the ground my intention is to get back to illustration so you will see me here more often!
For those of you who are unfamiliar with my work - I currently work 2-4 color and in either line art or block color as my illustrations are created with the intention of being letterpress printed. Once my design is final a press plate is made for each color of the design. Then I individually print each color on my 705LB vintage Vandercook Printing Press.
Letterpress printing is amazing because it allows me to turn my digital work into a completely handmade product. If you would like to see some of the prints that have already been printed from previous illustrations - be sure to check them out HERE in the Art Prints Section!
PS - this print will more than likely to to plate in the next few weeks so check back to see the transformation from image to letterpress print!
