Hey guys! Today I’m gonna show you a bunch of mono-prints I did in class! I did not take any photos of the process but I do have some cool prints to show you. I scanned all of them and some eventually make the cut for my 18 lines!
I brought some materials to class, hoping it would help to create some really cool prints, but it turns out that those materials i brought to class are too thick! it created some weird white patches instead. Therefore, i have to utilise the tools in the studio to draw rather lines on the mono prints, and also use some plastic sheets and strings to create prints.

For this mono print, I actually picked out small parts of it to create a very minimal line:

I also combine mono prints with some mark-making marks to create my lines. For this mono print, I picked out the bottom left hand part, where it looks very marble/crystal kind of texture:

The “crystal ball” on the top left corner of this mono-print also make the cut for my lines! I think I have an obsession with crystals:

This is the mono print I thought was quite unsuccessful. But the white patches kind of look like flower to me somehow, and I eventually thought the negative spaces looks really pretty. So I did some editing to this print by removing the extra marks within the negative space.

I hope they inspire you in certain ways! Ciaos!
..if your self-made tools were “bones” of the project- these monoprints are definitely “flesh” to your emotion evoking concepts. Love the large optimum resolution of the monoprint for the OSS. Always check and avoid “thumbnail” size – as we have the unique opportunity to “see” all the details (“nerves and bloodstreams”) that would have remained invisible in the hard copy monoprint.
