Head Case

Heres the latest in a 3 week project! Its a collaboration between Adam Crine, Phil Shelley and me to create a t-shirt design each in the theme of "hear no evil, see no evil, speak no evil". Im covering hear no evil, but decided to rename it "Hearno". Basically the theme of the design is robot heads, hence the rename to Hearno.....because thats his name!! The three designs will be available in seperate packs, containing one robot T-shirt, a screenprint on card of the design and an additional digital print of all three designs stacked up like a totem pole (were promoting ourselves here!). Heres the design coloured on photoshop, and a preview of one of the colour screens. Printing is in action in a few days so keep your eyes peeled for the results (fingers crossed).

Seperating Layers for Screenprint on PhOtOsHoP

Found this helpful tutorial that simplifies separating an images colour to make screens for multiple colour screen prints.

So Bikeman is back! with his freak in a basket....
I started of by using the "magic wand" tool (whilst holding shift) to separate each colour and save it as a new layer. This was a slow process with this image and took roughly five hours.

Once all the colours are separated they need to be turned black to be then printed onto acetate. There are four colours in this image (orange, red, light blue, dark blue) and each has a separate layer. As well as this an additional layer of the whole image un-separated is needed to cover up any gaps that the magic wand missed (this will be a slightly lighter colour than the rest of the image so none of the paper or t-shirt shows through)
Here's an example of two of the layers, with markers in each corner to help with alignment whilst printing :)

 When term starts I will have access to the screen-printing studio, So Watch This Space for some fresh prints FOR SALE!!!!!!!!!!!!  ;)
