2022 – The Year of the Tiger.

From the previous post, you probably saw the work of a tiger’s face made by a robot https://jungyeonroh.wordpress.com/2021/07/13/korean-tiger-series/
I didn’t intend to make a tiger series in 2021, but I suddenly realized that 2022 is the year of the tiger! So I made it letter-pressed version prints for greeting cards.
For the envelopes, I chose gold-ish ones and printed an image by silkscreen.
It still took 80 to 120 days to arrive in the USA, but I’d be thankful if it could be arrived in at least 2022.
If you got the lucky tiger & hawk envelope shipped from Korea, your 2022 has lots of luck! 🙂

Merry Christmas and happy new year! 🙂

‘Face Swap’ Silkscreen Printings

Finally, the semester ended, and now I have time to update! 🙂
Every Friday afternoon in the last semester, I had an illustration class to teach.
These drawings I made for one of the ‘Tiger reinterpreted projects’ and was actually rejected sketches.
But I planned them to turn into silkscreen prints, so it took 3 months to finish.
I printed five color separations for each piece, including a blending layer on the heavy cotton papers. The meaning of these pieces is ” What is real and what is fake? A girl and a bird whose faces have changed due to the filter effect of the face app. The tree trunks have cell phone cameras and hidden ones. “
Hand-pulled screen prints made me exhausted, but I still believe if I want to be highly satisfied with the result, my own work has to be printed by myself.
So, please enjoy this process.
See you on the next post! 🙂

New Book project – Urban Jungle Yogini!

This summer, the busiest season I’ve ever had so far in my illustration life, and here’s the one reason that made me busy! – in a happy way!

I just finished my new seventh silkscreen handmade book art directed (for silkscreen) by David Sandlin. It took six weeks, and I made ten copies.

Hope you enjoy and if you are interested in purchasing book or prints, please e-mail me at jungyeon@jungyeonroh.com

A yogini is doing handstand acroyoga with a gorilla, so it is supposed to see in the vertical way! 0102030405

Special handmade cards

Every Saturday afternoon, I spent my time at the SVA printshop to do a special project. Here you can see the results below. These are the same size, two to three color silkscreen images.
