    Default JustinMyer Process for Gallery 1988 "Devil Town" Show

    Hey Everyone,
    Putting together some images I'm taking during the printing of my piece "It's all over because it's all over town" that I'm putting together for Gallery 1988 and Dan Danger.

    So lets begin this massive 24 plate, 16"x72" bastard.



    The plastic I use is PETG .030 that comes in 8'x4' sheets that I have to cut down into 16"x12" plates, which turns into a nice sturdy stack.



    Then apply the same mundane skills to the ImagOn



    Then I separate my images in photoshop, arrange the channels and output. I use a Sihl brand inkjet film and an Epson 3000 to do my outputting.




    From there I start the exposure's and printing. I expose the plates on a Nuarc 26-1k plate maker, with personal modifications...




    Then the printing begins, I'm proofing each section individually, and then i'll be making them fit together onto the giant sheet of paper...


    plate2

    with the plate still on it

    and plate three


    and here it is slightly together, half way finished the proofing....



    more tomorrow....

    Ok,
    Here is an update....




    so thats all the individual sections proofed. Here they are spliced together.




    from there I started to process of printing the entire thing on one large sheet of paper...
    I'm using a roll version of the Hahnemuhule Copper plate that comes in a 49"x22 yard long roll, crazy, which is cut down to 28"x7'


    while the paper is flattening, I inked up all 24 plates....


    then i can start feeding the plates through the press one at a time...




    After the first three plates go through, I slide the paper through the other side and start on the next four, couldn't really photograph that cause I had my hands full...last plate here....


    The prints are coming out more like monotypes than edition-able prints but I'm kinda liking that.
    Here are some shots of the first proof.



    I proofed a second copy today and i'll do another on Wednesday and Thursday before it ships out, i'll take some inked plate photos tomorrow...
