Kite Flyer - screen print

Here it is!  The Kite Flyer my four colour screen print.  

 I designed this a long time ago and it's been hanging in mid air for a while as a lithograph.  After a bit of a break from printing in general this is the image I decided to start with.

My first session in the studio for ages and it was a nightmare. One where I came out with nothing at all - not a single thing!  After lots of messing with emulsion, drying, washing, exposing again in a crazy cycle for four hours I managed to squeegee nothing at all. This happens sometimes and you forget that it does, so when it does happen and the print gremlins are at work it's easiest to go with it...then go home scratching your head.

I returned for another session which couldn't have been more different - very' s the way the ink blows apparently and the pictures below are the proof.
