almost a miracle




This week I screen printed 11 new big prints (editions of 10 + some extra e.a. = ca 150 prints) in 3 days and actually made it home for dinner - even though DHL mislaid the package with my screen printing frame which totally messed up my thorough planning. Instead I managed to borrow a huge screen printing frame in a so-so condition and was lent two other frames (in a great condition) from someone I barely know. My sister helped me get the kid from preschool, I didn't go to the bathroom, I ate over the printing table, I cut papers without fucking up when measuring - and I printed with an intensity that made the joints in my hands ache.

Some of the prints look kind of pop, don't you think? Next week I will hand colour them - because what is a colouring page without colour? (I might save one print of some of the images in just black and white anyway)
