JPR Screenprints

John Patrick Reynolds Screenprints
I've read comics all my life, since the 1960s, when I practically learned to read with them. The Rover was my first love. The paper it was printed on was uncoated newsprint - I loved the way it felt in my hands. It was also well designed - I loved the way it looked, and the pictures.

Now I'm a screenprinter. I discovered about 15 years ago that comics were a perfect fit for screenprinting. The medium is good at producing flat vivid colour and bold outline - just right for the stylised nature of comics.

Soon after that, I was lucky enough to be the first screenprinter to gain permission from Britain's top comic publisher, DC Thomson, to use its fabulous archive of images. So I have the privilege to produce screenprints of such icons as Dennis the Menace, Gnasher, The Bash Street Kids, Desperate Dan and Beryl the Peril. I also have permission, from Editions Albert René, to use their archive of Asterix The Gaul images.

All the images started life in comics. I present the panels or details of panels to be appreciated in their own right, independently of the stories they spring from.

The paper I've used is cotton, mould-made paper milled in Somerset - I use a soft paper which soaks up the ink. It also reminds me a bit of the old newsprint that British comics used to be printed on. — John Patrick Reynolds
