Ali screenprint

This is a screenprint I finished Friday in my Printmaking for Digital Media class. The first one was actually an error; the blue was supposed to uniformly cover the background, but it worked out pretty well that it didn't. The image is based off a photograph from a postcard I bought while at an exhibition of Black British photographers at the Museum of London a few years ago.

This artist Svetlana Boym did a series of prints done with a printer that didn't have a working black ink cartridge kind of like your first blue ink "error." Awesome Ali prints...just sharin :)

whoa, that's very cool; I like when unexpected things happen. In this case it would have been worse (to me) if it had gone as planned.

This is very cool. Where is that Ali pic from?

It's from a postcard I have from a British photographer, it's Ali in London. Not sure what year, though.
