A large portion of advanced print making was dedicated to screen printing. Our final screen printing assignment had to be a minimum of 4 colors, with registry (meaning that things line up and you have to know where everything goes to get them to do so). I decided that I was going to revisit the geishas that I made in screen printing one original geisha prints but add an intricate background and more detail.

In the end, I ran 15 prints of it and decided not to run the other geisha.
