Screen Printing Testers

Hay everyone,

This week I've been testing my line art for the Hairy Tales image I posted a few weeks ago.
Make sure you click to see all the details, its funny how each time I drew the old lady she turned out different =) 

Here are the left are testers of different pens I could use for the light fixing process in screen printing. 
On the right is how it screen printed on blotting paper, and some little colour tests on my favourite ones.

Penguin Book Cover

I know I haven't posted in awhile, I've been busy working on many other things.

I recently finished this book cover for the Puffin children's book cover prize. 

Wow I spent so much time on it.

I went with a theme of Snow White, I love the red apple.

Here it is!

Click to see everything.

It is all screen printed, then all the elements were put together in photoshop. The background texture I did myself with a mixture of glue and paint.
Im really pleased with the out come.
