King Louie

I love the clothes by King Louie, don't you? Especially the skirts and dresses. I recently bought this skirt and top, cute, don't you think?

Quick collage

A couple of months ago I quickly made this collage for a colleague who was leaving our team. It is inspired on Java-eiland, an island in the part of Amsterdam where we work and he also lives on his boat. I wanted to post this earlier, but I made the mistake to scan this in high quality on my then new scanner. Now it is 173 MB large and I can’t do anything with it. I tried many things to make it smaller, but it didn’t work. So now I just copied it to Paint by using Print Screen. But if anyone has a better idea to solve this problem I love to hear from you.

screen printing class (1)

I have attended my first two screenprinting classes. The first lesson was filled only with screenprinting theory, showing how the machines worked and all that. At the end, my head was spinning of all the information. I was afraid I would forget everything before the next class.

We were asked to bring a black and white image for the next class. I didn’t have much time to draw anything, so I just stamped a pattern with my orange slice stamp. During the lessons everybody seemed to have forgotten some things, but together we managed to make our own screens with just a little help.

I had planned to buy some tea towels or anything to print on, but I didn’t have time for that, so I use some scrap pieces. I really like the result though, so kept the screen and paint for the next lesson. I hope I can find some time to buy tea towels or cushion sleeves this time.

I made the photos with my mobile phone, so don't mind the quality...
