in Project 1 Emo

My line is emo: Monoprints

To kickstart our project, we were told to try out monoprints. Monoprinting is pressing an inked plate onto a variety of inks, tools, and items to create different types of prints. The beauty of monoprint is that one can achieve a huge variety of prints by experimenting with different methods, and that no print will ever look similar.

Here is a video example of how monoprints are done!


These are a few samples of my work:
