The Art of Comic Screenprinting

Thu 18 Oct 2018

This fascinating free event is suitable for anyone who is interested in Comic Art.

John Patrick Reynolds, the only screen printer with permission from DC Thomson, the publisher of The Beano, to use its fabulous archive of images in his work will give a talk about the process he uses from comic to paper.

John discovered about 15 years ago that comics were a perfect fit for screen printing. The medium is good at producing flat vivid colour and bold outline – just right for the stylised nature of comics. All the images – or versions of them – that he uses to produce his screen prints have started life in comics and are presented to be appreciated in their own right, independent of the stories they come from.
