By the end of 2012, I released a series of six screen printed two colour posters (90 x 120 cm). 30 copies of each poster were printed and the posters are sold as a set of six and individually. All prints are signed and numbered.

The challenge was to create as much variation as possible using two colours only, red and blue/green (approximately Pantone 229 and Pantone 321), and at the same time to get around the limitations of the screen printing technique. I could not use regular computer generated gradients, so I had to work with a very coarse rasterization based on hand-applied strokes of varying weight.

I had a lot of fun participating in the printing process. Whenever I’ve had the opportunity, I have tried the technique of screen-printing. It is special, compared to offset-printing, because of the limits on fine detailing, so it was great to experience how well I understood what it took to vary the colour, and it was extra-great to be working with specialized, professional screen-printing people.

Here are the six posters:

These details from two of the posters ought to be close to 100% of the original size:
