My First Gocco.
Well, I finally used the Print Gocco I bought from Japan last September (Louise had set me an ultimatum - either I used it or she was going to give it away to "another little boy"). My first attempt was not a complete success but it's growing on me. I think the photocopy I used to create the master was a bit too dark and actually fused to the screen in places. Ironically, when I'm doing stuff digitally I scan in scratches and in the past I've even tried to emulate the mis-registered look of a dodgy screen print. Now I'm getting these effects naturally I want it to look like it's been produced in Photoshop. Sheesh! I'm never happy. The next one will be better.
