    Default A modest process thread (A Silver Mount Zion gigposter)

    I finally tried my hand at printing a full bleed image. And it was for a really awesome band, Silver Mount Zion. I started out doing some sketches and ultimately produced a pencil drawing (shown below on my light table with a new sheet of paper on top of it as I begin to ink for the final drawing).


    Some detail:


    More progress:


    More detail:


    Below is the finished drawing. You can see some pencil marks to be used as reference for placing the text. These were erased/covered up by the lettering.


    Here is some handwritten text. Some of it will be enlarged and inverted on a copy machine.


    Here is the key line film.


    Cutting the first color!


    I'm using a film pen on the film here. The aim was to achieve a gradient texture that kind of mimics the sparkle finish on a vintage drum set.


    First color printed! There will be lots of transparent overprinting now.


    Cutting the second color. It will be a transparent yellow-orange sort of color.


    Mixing the second color:


    Printing the second color, a subtle split fountain:


    Here is the third color, a very transparent pastel yellow. This film was also made using a lots of stippling with a film pen.


    The fourth color was a transparent white/gray that I hoped would give me highlights, as well as light shadows when printed over the plain stock.


    Okay, time for the key line! Here are a bunch of the prints in the drying rack. But I'm not done yet.


    Now the fun part. I used to work at a printing company, and they've got a couple of huge paper cutters. So I head over there to get these trimmed down.


    My dad works here. Here he is holding up the finished product:


    All stacked up and ready to sign!

    There is nothing modest about this or any process thread.

    Nice print, I like the bleed.

    Thanks. "Modest" might not have been the best word. It's intimidating to post a process thread after that Horkey/Ryan one, though!
