New at LitKids: Treasure Island Edition No. 2 Print

Thursday, November 1st, 2012

Although I’ve been hella busy lately (p.s. – whatever happened to using the word “hella”), I have had a few spare moments to pull together this new, improved version of the LitKids print with Jim Hawkins from Treasure Island. I originally printed Jim as part of the original few LitKids in 2010, but the lines on the drawing ended up being too thin and as a result only a few decent prints came out of it. This newer version, re-drawn with more robust lines and printed in three colors, came out much nicer. I ran out of Treasure Island pages on this one, so some of them were printed with circa 1910 copies of Swiss Family Robinson and Aladdin.

The Jim Hawkins Edition 2 LitKids Print is only $12 at my Etsy shop.

Treasure Island’s Jim Hawkins at LitKids

I spent the last few mornings doing up a run of neato keen-o Jim Hawkins of Treasure Island prints. These came out pretty nice; Christopher even told me they were the best yet. Although the drawing has thinner lines (meaning less likely to come out in the printing stage), the screen prints ended up having a quality where the figure looks like it’s fading into the page. I also tried a neat dot pattern for the background shape. The source book was a “Fireside Series For Boys” copy of Treasure Island that has a great antique quality. I swear the book must be at least 100 years old.
