christmas posters

today i worked on an estimate for these neat screen printed christmas posters of the three wise men. they are like scrolls, so they have been stored rolled and exhibit all the usual damage from being stored that way...cracks and creases, edge tears, and abrasions to the media. the bottom photo was taken in raking light, and you can see the difference in sheen between each layer of ink...some are glossy or metallic, and some are matte, but the effect is really nice. i'm really hoping to work on these. it's a straightforward treatment, but a fun and dramatic one. the client bought a mid-century modern house and now has the walls to hang these cool guys just in time for the holidays.
