Hey, thought some of you lot might want to see my first go at screen printing, as I chose a subject matter close to my heart.

I did a course on Saturday at ink spot press in Brighton with my dad (muddypaws on here) that I got for his birthday.

I struggled to decide on a subject, but finally clocked that it should be something I love. Bikes. I nice retro bike theme showing Jonny in full flight with the words he used to have written on his bike.

Just a bit of fun but interested to hear what you think?

Yup, created the image of Tomac from a photograph & set the type.
Not my photo so I would have to check if its possible to sell them. I just made them for me really.
