Silkscreen assignment was to print on a different material other than paper or t-shirts so I chose pyrex dish ware I picked up at the vintage shop down the block.

I made a zine as one of my final projects in the silkscreen class.
One side is photo copied but when you unfold the zine, the inside has a screen printed poster
You can get one on my etsy shop!

This is my Junior Series (kind of like an art thesis) all done and is the big project we as SVA illustration juniors work on all school year long. There was a nice gallery show displaying selected works which I was a part of and I also won a scholarship thanks to this piece! So that was very exciting and I am very happy with how my series turned out.
Technique: etching and aquatint printed on cloth with hand embroidery
King Haakon VII began his reign in 1905 after Norway dissolved its union with Sweden. The Norwegian people were happy with their King and their new independence. When the Nazis threatened to invade in 1940, King Haakon VII refused to cooperate with them so Germany attacked. The power struggle for Norway and the King’s resistance against the Nazis is the focus of my series. Many other countries recognized Norway’s courage and FDR acknowledged this in his speech, “Let him look to Norway.” After years in exile, when the war was finally over, the King was welcomed back to his country with open arms.

Latest silkscreen project (I have another silkscreen project I have yet to photograph and upload but eventually I will)
Handmade patches - very limited number is on etsy right now, but I will also be selling them at SVA's Freshmeat Cartooning and Illustration Fair on Friday! (Here's the website for more details) I will also be selling stickers, other items from my etsy shop and possibly a zine about cats if I can finish it by then.
If there are extra patches after friday they will be added to etsy as well.

I have started a self portrait personal piece and am teaching myself beadwork. I've been posting some in-the-process shots on my instagram and thought I'd drop them here too.
