Typos and Twitter Fiends (Silkscreen Process)

I recently printed a 5 layer silkscreen, only to be informed by a twitter follower (Thanks Nuria!) of my literary agent Steven Malk, that there was a typo…so I had to go back and print a layer of white to knock out the offending misprint and then go back in with an additional layer of pink to make it right. 7 layers for the price of 5…very annoying, but I’m glad it was caught before I sold any and sent them out into the world. See the pictures below:

Ready to be cut down and signed…sorry for the phone photos:

The prints will go up for sale tomorrow…stay tuned…
