Super big thanks to all the talented people who participated in my workshop on Wednesday, you guys rocked it! You all really made it awesome, I had a super fun time. (Note for next time: I will put out the cookies before everyone leaves not after. I totally spaced on that, very embarrassing.) I was super flattered by all the interest in the workshop, I know it filled up fast and there was over 100 people on the wait-list. I’m going to figure out how I can include more people next time.
Forgotten Tarot Cards
The goal of the workshop was to design two print positives only using analog techniques for a two color screenprint (end results pictured above). No computers were allowed. I asked everyone to concept and design a super enigmatic and hopefully weird Forgotten Tarot Card. They really nailed it! Then they jumped into making positives of their design on a worksheet with a variety of techniques, Rubylith, oiled halftones photocopies, ink on velum, cutout construction paper and collage of bits of old transparencies (see an example below). It was fast paced and they had to really trust themselves and make quick decisions embracing any mistakes as part of the process.
