I love your art! Like how does one make prints as beautiful as yours?

Thank you so much anon! I’m very happy to know that you find my stuff pretty! :) 

To answer your question I guess I’ll answer according to what I understand. If you are referring to my printmaking stuff (which I haven’t shared here that much), well, I’m not really sure if they are beautiful, at least the print quality isn’t great to be honest because I lack of practice (and skill). But it all depends on how you want to print. In my case, I do screen printing and linoleum because I like working with bold lines. For screen printing I guess it depends on how well you “burn” your image on your silk screen and also the angle and pressure you apply on your squeegee when applying the paint. My advice, according to my experience so far is, if you are going to work with detailed illustrations then the bigger the better because if your illustrations are small with a lot of detail (small lines/dots/crosshatching/etc) these details might not come up the way you want to and they will look like a huge dark blob instead (once you make your print). For linoleum, well, it all depends on the quality of your paint; how well you mix it, and also, on the amount of pressure you put on your press. That is on terms of technique and like I said, I’m not very skilled on that yet.

If you are talking about the illustrations in general, well, I’m not sure they are beautiful but again, thank you very much for thinking that. The universal truth for getting good results is practice and as much as I want to get around that step it’s impossible! Haha. I have a hard time with drawing, lately my inspiration comes and goes, so I just let it happen whenever I feel like drawing, I try not to force it, but this is something that works for me, I guess you have to find your own work flow in order to be inspired. Also, play with shapes, colors, go outside your comfort zone.

I guess my short advice in case this is TL;DR is to practice and if you have the tiniest desire of making something, well, do something! Always ask questions to your peers and professors, be open to criticism, and of course enjoy yourself :)

I got inspired by a drawing omocat did some time ago of actuallygrimes. hope i made my inspiration justice and also grimes. and i thought grimes looked like sailor moon in genesis’s video so i tried to make her a little bit sailor moonesque.
