I printed the keys for fabric pianos today to be sewn and stuffed. This is Frank's piano, which he used to have lessons on when he was a child. His father was a duop singer for a band called the Vespars and encouraged Frank's musical pursuits.

Printed Repeat Pattern

Custom Curtains

I am screen printing these custom curtains for my brother's birthday present. He wanted depictions of countries with interesting shapes and I added the texture based on the population.

One line = 100,000 people, so note the three lines for Iceland, and the thick patterns of India and China, which need 11,000 - 13,000 lines each. I still have another 5,000 lines for India and another 8,200 for China...
