"Girls is a piece that I completed as a personal project in my Mentor Class with Anthony Capparelli. At first, I drew the image digitally using a Cintiq, and then printed my four color separations on vellum paper and individually burned them into a coated silkscreen. I mixed the specific colors I wanted using water-based acrylic inks and transparent base and printed an edition of 25 prints at the Gowanus Print Lab in Brooklyn. I also later turned it into a GIF for which I digitally changed the colors of the girls’ skin."
