If you like free things, make sure to read this.

I have no idea when I first bookmarked her website, but it was at least 4 years ago. I couldn’t help it, she took line drawings and printed them on t-shirts (two things that I can’t resist). I've since seen her grow into making it a full-time gig with her own 6-arm screen printing press.

For her feature on DA, she's been gracious enough to let us view her process of taking a concept from drawing and color seperation to print and final inking.

  1. Marniebiddle!

  2. Oh, and thanks for the great post about the screenprinting process. Very cool.

  3. ...And that's the name of our pet pig! That was so fast Lillian! Nice work.

  4. Wow, there's so much work to that process!!! It's amazing how the final product is just beautiful simplicity - but there's so many steps to the colorization. Makes me feel very spoiled that I work primarily in digital.

  5. Simply gorgeous!

  6. Hi! I want to ask you what do you use for the colors, what king of machine? thank you From Argentina

  7. hey this art is very nice to look at all the time..i like it :)

  8. Ooooh I like your houses!

  9. My favorite of the steps is actually the first one! Keep It Simple Stupid, right? Lovely drawing style.

  10. This is awe-som-e!

  11. I much prefer the 3rd, 4th & 7th pictures as they´re much more original & have more ´soul´. I think my favourite is 4 as it gives the building a threatening edge, evokes childhood memories of scary films or something. I find the 5th fascinating as the lower part looks like a rifle & makes me think about Iraq, protecting your home from invaders, fear of outsiders/unknown people - it´s so rich in meaning because it´s simplified without being simplistic. You should exhibit it in a gallery in London if you haven´t already, I bet they´d like it.

  12. perfect!

  13. That is soooo cool!! You are a genius. I wish I could draw like that. Great job.

  14. This is really cool! it reminds me of the scary house they used in that movie, The Woman In Black, w that Harry Potter dude. I just entered a contest w my art, you may wanna enter? I think you could win up to 10k. It's at Afterschoolawards.com. My mom told me about it:) Have you thought of drawing people? My friend said that paintings of famous people like John Lennon & Marilyn Monroe sell very well. I'm trying to get into that.

  15. this is wicked :)

  16. this is wicked :)

  17. I had a professor in college (andrew kozlowski) who did prints very much like this and I was always amazed at the line work and detail that comes through in screen printing. Keep up the good work! This stuff is awesome!

  18. This is amazing! :D

  19. Makes you want to live in it.
