Hempsley had a booth at this past Earth Day on April 22, 2018 — so I of course had to print some t-shirts for the whole team!!
My Printmaking Background
I took 2 semesters of printmaking in college, and it was easily my favorite class. I had freedom to be creative with any concept I wanted, with the only limits set by the challenges of the current medium. I learned how to translate ideas from wood block carvings, intaglio, screenprinting, letterpress, linoleum, and more into a finished piece of art.
Back in 2013, I did my first ever screenprint project in my Printmaking I class. My brother was going to be having a baby in a few short months, so I made team baby gear for the whole family that proudly displayed "Honorary Member of the Baby Bailey Squad."
This was my second screenprinting experience, done in my Printmaking II class. This piece combined a linoleum carving (in light blue), letterpress (type in dark blue), and screenprint (the gold text reading lessly).
In 2015, I got all the supplies to screenprint my own tshirts for my Senior Capstone show, of which one part was re-branding a construction company.
