Cthulhu Risograph

I had the chance to see some beautiful risograph prints at the Gallery Nucleus in Portland and wanted to try designing one of my own. Risograph prints can be an alternative to screen printing although the color and sizing options are more limited. But the results can yield more charm and surprises than other print methods.

Below is the image as originally designed in Photoshop.

And this is the result of the risograph print on off-white paper with red ink at 100% opacity. The speckled, distressed areas give it a hand-made look.
