Illusion.

Screen printing usually requires one screen for every color of ink. CMYK screen printing is an exception where a full color illustration or photograph is converted to 4 sets of halftones (tiny dots) and screen printed using the 4 process colors; cyan, magenta, yellow, and black. The inks are translucent and when they overlay and print near each other they simulate all the colors in the spectrum.

4 SCREENS, ENDLESS COLORS

I converted my full color illustration to halftones and screen printed as CMYK. To the right shows each color and how it builds to create additional colors during the process.

This is one of the more technical screen printing techniques, but the general process is the same for all my prints where each color is an individual screen and printed one sheet at a time.

THE FINAL HOMEBOTEE, is my little robot from the Home.HOPE! exhibit that was inspired by the 2020 Stay at Home Order. Below shows some snippets of the initial inspiration and how the concept went from sketch to inked drawings that were scanned in and color added for the final illustration.
