Andy Warhol-Inspired Monoprints
When Andy Warhol first used this blotted-line monoprint method, illustrators were amazed – and they’re still amazed today! In this class, Creativebug’s resident artist, Courtney Cerruti, walks you through the very same process that Andy Warhol made famous using simple materials: a nib pen, acrylic ink and transparency film. Plus, of course, you’ll need a wonderful image to trace. Without any drawing skills required, you’ll learn how to create one-of-a-kind monoprints by tracing over the image, then adding a touch of watercolor to make your designs pop.
