Graphic Thiefling

  • on Tuesday, January 03, 2012
  • As I wrote in my previous post, we tried out different techniques in graphic classes. Second technique is called Drypoint. We carved the image with a hard pointed "needle" on copper plates. It's the opposite of Relief printing, meaning the things you carve out will be printed. As if you were drawing with a pen.

    This time I came up with a motif without looking through my old sketch books. It's the Thiefling that I also drew later in my Moleskine and showed here.

    This time there was more trial printings than with the Relief printing, and I thought it a lot more trickier than the former to. So of course I made a gif with some of the process prints, 'cause we all love animation.
