Rascar Capac

As most Tintin enthusiasts know, Rascar Capac is the mummy from The Seven Crystal Balls. This silk screen depicts a scene in which Rascar Capac smashes a crystal ball. I foolishly printed this on a shirt, and I have, in the four or five years since having made this print, never worn it out of the house.

You can see my process, starting with tracing an enlarged photo copy. I made an acetate copy of the tracing, then printed multiple stencils onto paper, for different colors. You can see the basic drawing at the bottom.
