A pun-based piece that plays around with the idea of a worm, meeting its impending doom from a tape-dispenser.
In this piece, I played around with the traditional definition of a tapeworm (a parasitic, ribbon-like worm), by placing a colorless earthworm in a standard tape dispenser, hence a tapeworm. It was my first print of the new year, and I just wanted to get back into the swing of things with it. This print served as a reminder as to why I rarely use halftones in silkscreen.
This portfolio features various stages of this project’s development. Listed below are some supplementary details.
