A modern twist on classic Cameo silhouettes, silkscreen printed by hand in bright poppy red over streaks of mustard yellow, grass green and metallic shimmer on heavy white 8x10" cardstock... featured on Etsy's blog, The Storque: http://www.etsy.com/storque/spotlight/etsy-finds-a-friend-in-need-9518/

I used sunlight to turn my funny illustration into a screenprint stencil, then hand-pulled a series of prints -- but only three in this colorway -- on recycled French cardstock, using paint instead of ink (not hot sauce and mustard which these colors remind me of). I may use the original drawing to create additional works.

The retro hand-mixed colors have a thick painterly texture achieved by dragging additives through them. Each one is unique and unrepeatable -- these are original monoprints, and the print in the first photo is the last one left in this color combination.

From our friends at Wikipedia: "Monoprints are known as the most painterly method among the printmaking techniques; it is essentially a printed painting. The characteristic of this method is that no two prints are alike."
