What's your favorite riso color or color combo?
Copper, green and black
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?)
I work in Adobe Illustrator so I just separate out all the colors in there. I always use the same paper, french white/natural speckletone, because I love how it looks. And I always feel like, I choose a color combo first and then a whole piece or book is inspired by it. My process is generally all digital even though I do sketch it out sometimes.
Share 1-3 things about your creative/conceptualizing process.
I love being inspired by the limited Riso palette and playing with patterns and creating scenes from building upon or repeating objects. Illustrator allows me to move around assets like I am decorating a room. Feels almost limitless.
What did you have on your mind when you were working on this project/piece (or in general)? (ie. Does your work (this or other) relate to a particular current movement or concept?)
I wanted to make a book with black and cornflower and the color mood inspired the story.
Do you have any risograph-related tips and tricks you'd like to share?
Always look over your separations just in case for overlap!
What is something that you would like to say to anyone reading this right now?
