Bees - Louise Cheatle

For my methodology project I chose to look at bees as I knew there would be lots of good starting points for research. I was also inspired by vintage insect poster charts and taxidermy. I chose to document the life cycle of a bee through research and print. I looked at each stage of a bees life, largely focusing on conservation towards the end of the project.

For the image above, I drew an image of a bee, then scanned it into photoshop so I could use it for screen printing. It was difficult to get the under layer in the correct place but I think it was down to printing issues from photoshop that made the alignment slightly off. Overall the prints came out very nicely!
