I printed the lovely shade of blue today after taking keen measurement and care to place it in just the right spot. I felt confident of myself as I ran my prints on the large press this go around. No more trepidation like what you read about in week 8. However, I had not sprayed my paper quite sufficient enough and still had a little bit of a sizing issue. We all worked quietly so as not to upset Kyle who was a bit of a black storm cloud today.
After a solid 50+ prints run off by team Ben, I commenced putting together the salmon portion of my print.
I then worked on the fine art of kerning. It was as if some deity had control of me and was holding the option key and the right or left arrow key to open up and close the right portions. (What an incredibly cheesy designer joke.) I felt pleased by the end result. Nothing is quite so satisfying as hand done, successful kerning work.
