the bird machine

i was SO excited this morning when notcot posted her praises about jay ryan and his wonderful posters--i love his work!!! i had bought my friend mike his book last year: 100 posters / 134 squirrels just because i thought he had such a great hand to his illustrations, and all the animals especially, are always doing something fun or have these spectacular emotions on their faces (look at that buffalo, ha!) and if you read the book, some of the most amazing prints he does are using a very few number of screens--it's CRAZY.

when i took screenprinting at MCAD this summer i learned how to do gradients, and this was my print that was inspired by jay ryan's style (on purpose. because he is amazing.)
