...printed yesterday during a mad two hour stint in the print room. i saw/heard/read about 'Papergirl Manchester' and thought i would join in. here is some info taken from the site - Papergirl is an art project from Berlin. In the style of American paper-boys, rolled art pieces will be distributed by bicycle in the streets of Manchester to random passers-by. With the support of Papergirl Berlin; it will consist of an exhibition, distribution of art and a party. Manchester will be Papergirl’s UK debut.
the first attempt of the raincloud pattern print didn't work out so i thought that this project was an excuse to give it another go as a Manchester project deserved something to do with Manchester rain. i only got twelve decent prints out of an attempt of twenty as the screen kept 'ghosting' and so I gave Janice of Papergirl Manchester eight of them and some lion postcards to hand out. one of the raincloud pattern prints is up for sale on etsy right now. it is a print room day tomorrow and i will be exposing a screen - the circus image.
