Nibsy is studying California History this year. As usual, we’ve had our own creative meandering around the subject matter, and we’ve had a great time learning along with our friends.
We have connections to a really fascinating blog devoted to Cuffy, the illustrious California Bear Flag bear, in all his various manifestations. Seeing all the interesting activity there gave us a shot in the arm to post again with our own Bear Flag creations.
I was really taken with a vintage postcard advertising the Panama Pacific Exhibition of 1915, which was posted on the Bear Flag Museum Blog.
I thought this was such great design, so of its time and yet so timeless. I suggested to my husband that it would be a great little screen printing project.
With a show coming up, it’s always good to have something new to present.
The strike off:
And the finished project: printed by hand, from an artful separation, with 5 colors.
