In October (’09) I decided I wanted to learn how to screenprint, so I reached out to eleven friends, got myself a copy of Print Liberation, and got ready to burn the screens. What started as a learning adventure soon became a finished Calendar with the work of 12 artists. I screen printed 30 copies in my 12 sq ft bedroom-office and stab-stitched them by hand. Each person was given a month, two colors to work with and one rule: only type allowed!
I designed July and while researching, found out that about 20+ countries have their independence day on this hot summer month. Orange days are representing liberation through a letterform separated in parts.
