Screen Printing is Magic

Hey all! It's Alex again. In preparation for Zine Fest a few weeks ago, Beth took me to the shooting range to give me the 411 on how to handle myself should the convention be over-run by a hoard of flesh eating zombies.

AIM FOR THE BRAIN, INTERN. AIM FOR THE BRAIN. 

Just kidding. Beth actually taught me how to screen print! Here's Beth washing out one of her screens. I finally learned the secret of how a giant light hardens emulsion on exposed areas on the screen, allowing the areas covered by your image to be washed away and printed through. (Turns out screens are not made through fairy magic, which is unfortunate as I have been bottling those tiny sparkling bastards for years in preparation for my screen printing career....)


I even got try my hand at printing some of Beth's covers for her daily comics. Yes, I do always stick my tongue out when I work. All the better to taste the comic with. I'm basically Michael Jordan.

Google "Michael Jordan Tongue"

Tah dah! The finished covers. (And I only accidentally screen printed the table once.) Tune in next week to see some of the cool comics I've been pulling from Beth's zine collection!
