12 does Pig Roast 2000 '08

every year rob's family has a hawaiian-style pig roast in their backyard. they dig a huge hole in the ground, line it with bricks, throw in an entire pig all prepped and wrapped up and cover it with coals to cook for about 20 hours.

mike designed an awesome two-color silkscreen poster for the event and early saturday morning we headed down to screen them and lay them out at work. the image was a stormtrooper with bbq sauce on his mask.

mike showed me how to coat the screens with emulsion and burn them the day before so that they would be dry and ready for printing the next day.

since the emulsion was a little uneven, mike had to tape up the parts that we didn't want ink coming through before printing.

we decided to mix 3 parts bbq sauce to 1 part red & brown ink so that the bbq sauce would actually smell and taste real.

curt and karen came to help us out.

karen and i were on salt and pepper duty. each bbq print was dusted with salt, pepper, and even some red pepper flakes for authenticity. :)

curt put the second color on

the problem with using spices on prints is that they get all over your screen

the first print was a little smushy

the rest of the bunch turned out fantastically.

after setting the prints out to dry, mike & curt cleaned the screens and got ready to do some pig-eating.

PIG ROAST 2000!!!!

we got there at 5, the pig had come out of the ground at 4:30. there was already barely any food left because of all these people.

Mackie no snacky

you may be wondering why all the Star Wars-themedness...

rob invited the local nerdlings Star Wars enthusiasts to come make an appearance at the pig roast. most of the kids didn't even know who they were.
