Jacqueline Ess

Blown away.
We’ve been totally blown away in the last weeks by a lot of work.
It’s a very good thing, I know, I don’t complain.
Most of all, our time has been absorbed mainly by 2 big projects:
the dvd for the 15th ufomammut’s anniversary (and we’ll talk about it in the next days)
and
the Clive Barker’s Jacqueline Ess print we’ve realized for the Comic Con in San Diego, in collaboration with our friends of Century Guild Gallery.
As many of you know, Raven Banner is working with Jovanka Vuckovic and Lena Headey (Game of Thrones) on a film adaptation of “Jacqueline Ess: Her Will and Testament” from Clive Barker’s “Books of Blood”.
To celebrate, we’ve realized a limited edition of 145 hand-pulled silkscreens and 100 copies of these will be offered at a special SDCC-only low price of $35 at Century Guild booth #2845.

I must admit that seeing our name between Klimt and Mucha is something incredible…
Anyway… let’s take a look at the printing process and let’s see how this print looks like.
Ready?

We’ve used a cream paper and the first color has been a red ink.

We had a metallic gold ink on top of it.
So we had a “brown” pattern on the dress thanks to the layering.
We created the pattern inspired by the idea of the power of jacqueline Ess, so a skull with tongue and eyes popping out.
And the circle around Jacqueline is another pattern done on the same idea.

After the skin we worked a dark brown on top for the lines and final design.

We gave our personal interpretation to the character of Jacqueline, a woman with the power of changing people’s body shapes, just using her mind.
She suggested us an idea of “passion”, in a sacred way, cause she’s a woman suffering for her great power.
We imagined her like a goddess, a madonna.

We’ve also worked on a variant version on gold paper, limited to only 40 copies.
Stay in touch to know more about it, cause a lot of news about it will come very soon.
