Born of the blogosphere…

Sammy, your friendly screening demon

… comes Screening Demons! Personally, I’ve been plagued with a screening demon for most of my life. I don’t know about you, but it has caused me much joy… and much pain.

I first felt it’s presence when I started silk-screening in my basement as a kid. I screened shirts by the dozen and sold them to my local restaurant and school. After college (a drinking spree that ended in Australia) and some traveling (a drinking spree that ended in Barcelona), I caught the bug again and started making shirts for myself and my friends for kicks. Then it was a local band’s poster, then another poster, then an order of t-shirts, then a business…

I love screen-printing but, like the magic water, it’s an evil mistress. After spending many a long night sweating over the press to yield yet another screwed-up shirt, I decided to get educated. I thought you might want to come along for the ride, so get ready for screen-printing tips, interviews, updates on festivals and markets, and whatever else looks interesting out there. Let’s get these Screening Demons out!

  1. Great name for a screening blog!
    I can’t wait to see what becomes of this.

  2. Nice blog and great idea, have to agree with Tabula that it will be interesting to see what this becomes. Is nice to have a screening site that is just not all about selling someone’s wares. That said, where is the stuff you do so we can check out the “walk” not just the “talk”.

  3. Hey Flaming Shoe Missy-

    Ah-hah! Didn’t think I could get away so easy! I’ll be introducing a new segment soon on my progress from sorry-ass screener to (hopefully) someone with phoenix-like prowess with the squeegee. I hope that was as poetic for you as it was for me. Thanks so much for reading and if you have any ideas on things you’d like to see, give me a shout! -S

  4. Excellent blog! Interesting article and very informative! I will necessarily subscribe for this blog.
