Astrolotl by Zeke Clough

Here's another book I silkscreened last year, it's all about one duck named Zeke Clough! This book is a compilation of crazy drawings, printed in different colors on various paper, well ...brown, black & crême paper. I spent few weeks onto layout, it wasnt easy (but very interesting) to manage different period drawings, and there was a lot of drawings with various sizes. Also I needed to move out some that i used in Alkom'X 8. So yes, it's challenge doing coherent book with various material, i had same difficulties with mine, while the one from Reijo Kärkkäinen was much more easy because it was a same series of drawings.

I also had difficulties with cover colouring! Well, the idea is to make something as nice as possible considering technical data and work, i'm printing 4 pages at a time so i can't be as effective as i could be with mechanic printing (automatic silkscreen with large frames). That's why I mostly concentrated on good result without too much layers. Also here I think drawings themself are great enough for they don't need too much manipulation!
