Black and White

The high graphic appeal of black and white images can be so enticing. Here, I've prepared three different images for photo-emulsion stencils for screenprinting. The original source for the top one was a detail from a decorated gourd. The middle design was created by resizing and repeating a vacuum appearing in a newspaper ad. The bottom image comes from a photograph I took in a railway station in Toulouse, France.


  1. All 3 are fascinating - especially what you can do with something common like a vacuum cleaner.

  2. I did a whole series of abstract drawings of shoe trees that still remain my favorites.
