A small watercolor painting of a Long-tailed Skipper Butterfly that I gave to my academic advisor/professor as a thank-you for being super awesome (we even made him into a meme). I’m graduating soon (tomorrow, actually!) and I’ll miss having him as a teacher among many other things.
Final project for my Screen printing: Patterns class. Pattern and finished neckpiece deals with the use of animal parts in the fashion industry. Articles of fashion that use animal parts (fur, for example) are often seen as luxurious and plush. This pattern and neckpiece is a stark contrast to that idea. The pattern looks pleasing from afar, but when the viewer gets closer, they are able to see that something is not quite right with the animals. The neckpiece itself is also tight around the neck and uncomfortable for the wearer.
Screen print on 100% cotton with natural embellishments such as: seashells, hemp cord, pumice stone beads & pieces of tree branches.
The card I made for my mom! I like to call them ‘golf ball quails’ haha. It’s a beautiful day to celebrate moms— Happy Mother’s Day!
Tiger swatch from my damask pattern. The pattern has been printed onto fabric, the fabric made into the neckpiece, and has been embellished. Photos of the final product will be up on Monday!
Got my screen printed fabric attached to the neckpiece’s base! Embellishing it today and finishing it by the end of the week. This is the front of the neckpiece… it will make more sense when I photograph someone wearing it.
Late-night screen printing, woo. Working on sewing the fabric into something that’s shaped like this lovely creation from Alexander McQueen.
