since monday (it’s now thursday morning), we’ve settled into a working groove (the exhibition opens friday night, after all), stopping only to eat amazing food (which will be discussed in the next post), so this set of photos is made up of shots of me at work, and a few of my colleagues as well. the shots in the print room were taken by my capable co-worker karen, unless she’s in the photo, in which case it was taken by me. also, it should be noted that karen pulled the best print of the day, the one that’s going into the exhibition.

first colour on the drying rack
washing out the screen for the second colour – this was take one – the emulsion didn’t set properly in one spot, so we had to scrap this and do it again
emulsion going down the drain. karen took this photo, and is clearly an artist who thinks like i do, because this is exactly the sort of picture i would have taken
we had to test the colours together, so why not use a picture of salleh?

and that’s that. edition finished, screen washed, on to the next project…
sketches of gem biscuits
it’s a gem biscuit game!
a stand for displaying the screen prints, which are actually kacang putih wrappers
a lot of kacang putih wrappers
and that brings me more or less up to date. it’s thursday, and it’s going very well. we’re having a paper cone making session this morning, i’ve got to put the finishing touches on the big drawings, and then in the evening, my singapore souvenir – which i’ll show you tomorrow.
