Society of the Secret Hand

Art

I made this for a print exchange. It was my first printmaking project in the design department at Cranbrook, so I used this as a way to explore 4-color separation in screen print. I also added a secret message in a 5th clear coat. The photo is from a stock photo disk, something I had never seen before. Ah, the innocence of youth.
