    Default Printing Dreams

    Does anyone else here have dreams about screenprinting? The other night I dreamt the mesh tension on my big screens had gone slack and I woke up in a sweat, my heart racing. This is not something new.

    See, that's the problem—I am already!

    My old photo prof/screenprinting mentor talks about going to a completely dry process like someone talks about quitting cigarettes. "I got out of chemicals three years ago," he says. He shows me spots on his hands where chemicals have eaten away his skin. My main assignment in class was getting him back on topic when he digressed for half an hour or so. I wonder if he'll sell me his roller frames...

    I do separations in my head sometimes and other times I stare at shirts and reverse engineer the seps.

    I have a problem.

    Man, nothing puts me in a worse mood that a bad night of printing. I started working on these (http://www.gigposters.com/posters.php?poster=34402), the trans. white layer, and there are two small patches that aren't printing. And it's inconsistent, and I can't figure it out. I know for certain that it's not blocked up with the excess emulsion that I cleaned off last night. I think my squeegee isn't wide enough. It's basically running edge to edge, but I don't have the time or the money to get a wider one now. Ugh. I'm still getting the hang of everything, but the last two projects I did printed really well so I thought this would be a snap...and I want to start making some money off of these (so I can buy things like bigger squeegees and food and whatnot), but if my prints aren't coming out, that delays making some real scratch off of it for a while.

    Therefore, I am drinking on a Tuesday night. Cheers.

    I lied. Fuck. Fucking blocked up with dried dilluted emulsion.

    Another round, please.

    don't recall dreams about printing. I do get ideas while sleeping. That Willie Nelson came while I was asleep. I also don't get much sleep so chances for dreams are slim. I do wake up seeing lots of wierd shit. Usually folks standing over me or in the bedroom.
