What's your favorite riso color or color combo?
Fluorescent Pink and anything.
Share 1-3 things about your technical process. (ie. how do you color separate?, how do you decide which colors, binding method, or paper to use?, is your process traditional, digital, or both?, if it's collaborative what does the back and forth look like?)
Rather than painting and color separating after the fact, I think about what colors I want to use and use digital techniques to paint and layer them individually in Photoshop. This gives me an approximate idea of the final result. Then I make changes based on paper and printing results. I choose paper based on the colors I want or sometimes I just fall in love with a paper color and gear the concept around it.

My work generally all start with an idea/mood popping into my mind. I write first. Either for a zine or just general thoughts around or about it. Helps to put down what I want to express. From there I sketch and plan compositions to help support it.
