Printing processes

GOCCO PRINTS- This hand printing method is done using a japanese gocco machine. Invented by RISO they were made for the Japanese home for the production of new year cards. They use a silkscreen type of system built into the machine, exposed by a carbon original image. Sadly RISO nolonger make the machines or supplies. There is a cult 'gocco' following amongst artists around the world and remaining supplies are traded between enthusiasts. I often choose to hand colour my prints with inks as my aesthetic is inspired by early hand coloured photographs and tinted prints.

SCREEN PRINTS-This handprinted method uses a silkscreen. The screen is exposed with light sensitive emulsion or painted by hand with screen fluid and screen block.

DIGITAL PRINTS- They are machine printed from original artwork.

RISO PRINTS- Existing somewhere between offset lithography and screen printing these japanese machines have a cult following of artists and collectors and are eco friendly. The riso machine is like the mamma to print gocco also by riso.The machine creates a stencil screen from banana paper which wraps around the soy ink drum printing fabulous riso colours. There are only aroung 15 machines in the uk and BRIGHTON is lucky to have the one owned and lovingly cared for by www.dopplepress.com.

 

 

Handmade really means made by
hand.
Inspired by the DIY Punk aesthetic all my prints are currently prnted by me mostly on my dining table. I may employ the photocopy machine in my local printers but that really is as technical as it gets.
For the more complex screenprinting i use a fabulous local studio pay as you use scheme and print myself using all the fabulous equipement.
Big Thankyou to INK SPOT PRESS in Brighton/Hove.
All my collage images come from original vintage sources and are incorporated into a hand drawn composition. I sometimes use dry transfer lettering but most text is drawn out by hand.
The modern trend in printmaking leans towards a sleek look with amazing quality inks and computer scanning that can remove any trace of the artists hand. Whilst i strive to produce the best 'quality' work i can,my marks are an important part of my aesthetic.
Whilst listening to supporters of GIRL SHIT i have decided to make some digital and RISO prints that allow a more competitive customer to be part of the work. Art should be accessible to everyone.
Big Thankyou to Dopplepress in Brighton for keeping riso printing available to artists.
 
 
Commissions
If you see something you like but its not quite right for you,get in touch(contact us).
Commissioning an artwork can be a wonderful experience for both artist and customer. It certainly doesnt cost anything to ask.
Please use the contact page to get in touch and i'll see what i can do.
Obviously commission costs depend on size,scale,materials etc but i'm quite happy to work within a set budget.
 
PRODUCTS
As i'm adding to GIRL SHIT  some products are being made by those that can rather than me. For example mugs and badges are things i just dont have the equipement for. All artwork is done from scratch by hand by me though.
