I want some of my pieces to look like watercolors. One of my favorite things to do is draw and watercolor. I also like to cut out pieces of different colored paper and make collages (like the flowers pictured in the collage; top right). Recently I have been planning my first print to go into production, a task that is as daunting as it is glorious. I love a very hand-drawn look so I am trying to find a balance between color separation & blended tones…I often muse over how people relate to artwork when it is printed onto fabric. As much as I am obsessed with prints, Erdem! Lacriox! please take a bow, it is tricky to gauge what people will be drawn to from season to season, like florals, Aztec zig-zags and geometric designs which have recently taken over the runways. I have used many prints in the past; Liberty of London and rare surplus vintage gems, but this is my first time printing yardage. When I ask boys about wearing a print they seem a bit unsure- for the Dahl & Dane collection we are going to keep the boy’s prints pretty subtle, like a vague glimpse of texture. But ladies! Tell me, what do you think about prints and how far do you go?
