I have missed being in the print studio since my class ended in the spring, but the impending arrival of baby Schnell was just the kick in the pants I needed to get back in there and make some art.  I spent several hours in the studio on Saturday and walked out with a couple of things for the nursery walls and a few additions to the baby’s wardrobe.

This screenprint was taken from a photo of Rue St Martin in Paris (shot from the balcony of the Pompidou), with a couple of hot air balloons thrown in for, you know, whimsy’s sake.

Good-looking gender-neutral baby clothing is hard to come by, so I left all the duck-covered onesies at the store and made my own.  This giraffe is my fave.

I have a couple of prints that are still in progress – assuming all goes according to plan, I’ll head back to the studio at the end of the month to finish them up (so hang tight, kiddo!).

  2. Nancy says:

    And I’m sort of laughing at the idea that you’ll be back in the studio at the end of the month but I’ll keep my fingers crossed for ya!

  3. Pat says:

    I can’t decide my favorite, of course I have to lean towards the ice cream!! I wonder if Shane has a favorite?? You are so talented.

  4. Adrienne says:

    Those onsies are adorable, Kelly! You are going to have one stylish baby!

  5. la v says:

    um, these are absolutely amazing. question: do you burn your own screens?

  7. kellyschnell says:

    Yes, the print studio has an awesome large-format photo processor unit. I looked into trying to do it myself at home, but it seemed like such a mess.

  8. brieanne says:

    yeah, i’ve done it at home, and it is way hard to get that much detail, plus you need like a power washer to wash out the screen with any efficiency whatsoever…
