A couple of weeks ago our managing editor, Michael Roman, took a screen printing workshop at We Are 1976 (read Screen Printing Workshop with Mike Arreaga and Brian McCorquodale at We Are 1976). Michael finally gathered together the few supplies needed to make his first screen print for Dallas Art News. The design is based on Andy Warhol’s famous Campbell’s Soup prints.
“I could not believe how easy and inexpensive screen printing was going to be,” said Michael. “I can’t thank Mike Arreaga and Brian McCorquodale from Holding Pattern enough for showing me the ropes. My first print looks really nice.”
Michael’s first print is a Campbell’s Soup can with Dallas Art News for the brand and museum for the soup contents. Andy Warhol’s image was slipped into the design for an additional fifteen minutes of fame.
We will ultimately use this design for t-shirts to help support Dallas Art News. For now, Michael has printed a limited edition of ten prints on paper and will sell these on Etsy.
Would this make a good t-shirt design? Let us know what you think of the design. Use the comment section below or add a comment to Twitter (twitter.com/DallasArtNews) or Facebook (facebook.com/DallasArtNews). We would love to hear from you.
