Now Printing: TRULUV Edition HankiePankies for Art-O-Mat

hankiePankie TRULUV edition in progress
Here’s a sketch of the 4th TruLuv hankiePankie design, in progress.

This week I’m finishing up my TruLuv HankiePankie edition for the Art-O-Mat. I’m using metallic inks for the first time on some of these prints, and it’s been interesting. The effect varies greatly from fabric to fabric. Looking forward to doing some work with metallics on paper, I did a few test prints and loved it. I’m thinking of doing a set of these designs as 2 color prints on paper so I can play with the metallic ink more. Here are some more in progress photos and you can read about this edition inspiration here and some more in-progress photos here and here and hereComing to an ART-O-Mat near you soon!

“Don’t be cruel” hanging up to dry. Note the funky silver striped fabric on the right, a special thrift find thrown in for fun with buttons still down the side (outside of frame)

Some of the “Love flies” prints are on a wild bed sheet pattern with woodgrain lines and giant fall leaves. I love how the leaves fall into the print in interesting ways.

Gunmetal metallic ink on pink, here. The metallic ink is less obvious in the darker colors when printed on light fabrics. I think it would look awesome printed on a black for a low-contrasty two-tone effect. Now remember: “Don’t be cruel to a heart that’s true.”
