I have to say that I didn't know if participate or not in this week #5FF because we don't celebrate Halloween in Spain, we have the day of the dead and we eat chestnuts and sweet potatoes but nothing like Halloween. But here is my list of things I love about Halloween:
As you know, I also work in my own screenprinting atelier and we have recently expanded our activities. We do screen print but only if the order is big. Due to our localization, we just get big orders about 4 or 5 times a year and all other orders are for small groups and we couldn’t compete with the prices of other ateliers, so we thought the best thing was to start working with other printing techniques.
After testing the new machines we bought, here are the first results of our brand new transfer technique. It allows us to print any drawing or picture even on a black t-shirt because we can print color white! I didn’t realize how awesome it is till we tried 😀
I’ve begun to print some of my illustrations as a test, here you have some pictures of the process and the result.
Ok... I became aware of "Things I Love Thursdays" a couple of weeks ago through the Geek Girls x Bloggers Fb group and as I see that it is a quite lovely thing, I've decided de jump in.
I have to say that Thursday has always been my favorite day, because it is blue, round and very nice, synesthetes will understand, for the ones that don't know what synesthesia is, here is a link: Neuroscience for Kids (This is not a great page but I find that they explain it very well).
Ok, so today is my favorite day and I find that writing about things I love is a good way to honor it.
And as much as Mandy Loves Supernatural, I love watching youtube videos about speed paintings... other things I love:
DIGITAL ARTISTS I LOVE Loish
I love how she uses the colors and all the curvy girls that she draws
I love how he uses the colors and simple shapes to build amazing paintings every day.
BOOKS I LOVE
