Kraken Process

We are currently working on a piece for the upcoming Release the Kraken! show at Subtext Gallery. The owners of subtext hunted down vintage thrift store paintings for a year now from all over the country. Each artist was given a painting with a body of water in it, and then asked to “Kraken-ize” it by adding some sea monsters, hydro-creatures & aquatic beasts of their liking.

We screened our design onto the painting last weekend with surprising success! We will be making some slight touch-ups to certain areas because the texture of the acrylic painting made it difficult to get a perfect print, however, we are overall very pleased with how well the image transferred. Check out the process images below.
