Risograph printing! Portland-based workshop at Kate Bingamin-Burt's OUTLET studio

Published on 2018-01-28

This is something I've been ogling online & in comic bookstores for a few years now and been meaning to try—and it finally happened! I was prepared to be frustrated by unpredictable colors and registration issues...yet they were tiny annoyances in an otherwise relative ocean-of-ease, compared to every other printmaking process. I made up a mashup experiment from some of my figure drawing image. I thought the process was particularly well suited for figurative limbs overlapping, hair intertwining, and translucent speech bubbles.

2-color process with Bubblegum Pink and Teal.
Can't wait to go back and experiment more, stay tuned for future riso postings.
