Illustrations for Screen Printing Manual

Those are screen printed illustrations for the 3rd edition of the Screen Printing Manual.

The illustrations depict typical actions during the screen printing process. I opted for a stencilled approach as it emphasises the stencil technology of screen printing, and is suitable for representing people engaging with technology.

I have followed the Russsian Constructivist tradition of the use of halftone gradients as commonly practiced by artists such as Vladimir Lebedev or Eduard Krimmer. Mine are digitally drawn rather than hand drawn with cryon or similar, but the effect is very similar, especially when screen printed.
