Fabric design

Drawing on tablet with Graphiter app

Still working on the wildlife mask fabric design but also developing a (hopefully) simpler design for screen print in the near future.  This design is made up of simple blocks and is to be dark grey on white fabric.  I started sketching these on paper then tried a lino cut which was quite quick and very precise, but didn’t quite get the look I wanted.  So I am drawing on the Surface Pro tablet using an app called Graphiter, which tries to emulate pencil drawing.  Not yet sure how to get a drawn line, with a slightly broken effect onto a screen for printing.  The motivation for this is to get at least one length of fabric I can make into clothing, baggies and/or a dress.  I may also try this design on a t-shirt…
