I’ve been working like a dog getting ready for Artsplosure designing new products… on fabric! Meanwhile, we’ve got just a few serigraphs (or pulled prints) as a result from registering our work as we print.
What’s a pulled print you ask?
A pulled print is also known as a serigraph or screen print and is a stenciling method. A serigraph must create a separate pattern for each color or blended color. Stencils can be cut from paper or film and adhered to the cloth (or the silkscreen) and areas can be blocked by masking to prevent paint to seep through. One to several shapes can be used to create the pattern design.
In my case, I use paper to help register the design onto the fabric that I’m printing. I want to ensure that the image is aligned with the parameters I’ve designed for the overall use and this can be a painstaking process. Because I have extra fine woven paper that I use for my CalligraphyPets prints and cards, I decided to have a bit of fun and use it. I love the softness of the metallic gold on the warm white paper. What a treat!

Save the date for Saturday May 21st & 22nd – We’re exhibiting at Artsplosure for the first time! Yay us! And while it seems as though it’s changed it’s venue from an exclusive juried art fair to a beer feast that happens to include art, we’d love for you to come down and see us. We’re not allowed to bring papergoods, but we’ll have plenty of other surprises.
Cultivating Your Sophisticated Style,
Inspired by my recent giveaway at Boylan Heights Art Walk, I decided to create a modified Fetcher. Fetcher now comes with slippers. Watch the video of the whys and how it came to be.
Chardonnay assists and provides quality control -a tongue & cheek inset for those of you who are ADD or just absolutely love kittens!

PS. This endeavor proved to agonizing as I learn the ins and out of iMovie vs QuickTimePro. It was also frustrating because the neighborhood bandwidth was painfully slow; the upload took more than 4 hours!! When I find out I’ve uploaded the wrong video… Oy! I have published this video on YouTube, however, because Chardonnay assists in his fashionable way, the inset didn’t show. Sorry I’m so stiff.
Bacchus (the FatCat) insisted he wear a crown -don’t ask me why. I told him that if he insists on wearing a crown, I’m adding hearts to it -he had no choice but to acquiesce. Suddenly, he wanted a sash, epaulets -I don’t think he even knows what an epaulet is- gauntlet and a cape. Go figure. The cat wants a cape, like a mouseketeer. Can you imagine Bacchus running around with the feather in his mouth, howling and tripping over his cape?
Of course, he wouldn’t listen to reason. I explained that Edna from The Incredibles wouldn’t design him a cape because they’re too dangerous. Then he reminded me of his first Holiday Season with us.
Bold and colorful, my calligraphic line takes a contemporary twist influenced by PopArt. Elegant and sophisticated, this new series will fill your abode with wit and charm.
The Blue Don: The Inaugural FatCat
Bacchus continues to expand his weight in a sassy and bold style, evolving into a bright acrylic form of color and line. When the alpha cat ages, so does his attitude. Bacchus believes he is now ‘The Blue Don.’
