I got the reg, still good value with the hand drawn turtle dove. Reminds me of Home Alone 2.

Actually, Jealous Studio can print an amazing giclee. Added the screened varnish and it's a sight to behold.

I have a giclee by Copyright that is just as nice or nicer than any of the screenprints I own including the various 20+ color Hush screenprints I have. Some giclees can definitely suffer in quality, but, if done correctly, they can be amazing prints. Audrey Kawasaki is another artist who consistently puts out amazing looking giclees.

Solely IMO (and most of this doesnt apply to hand finished giclees).....
Giclees = glorified Kinko's prints. I understand that many artists' styles don't translate to the screen print medium, but in this particular case I think it could, and I think it'd have a more personal touch. Giclees are reproductions, whereas screen prints are new creations. I own plenty of Giclees myself, but it's hard to justify high price tags. Many Giclees are also questionably archival.

Also, the varnish and other unique paper types used for Giclees only exist to enhance that "reproduced" look. Varnish can also be added to screen prints super easy, but I don't think many artists use it because of the terrible glare it creates (not sure if proper framing glass can fix this).

Are you talking about the printing machines or creating the films? I am talking about the artistic process of creating the films used for printing, not the actual process of pulling a squeegee across a screen.

What's artistically different about creating something on a tablet or computer versus creating the films for a screenprint?

Unless the artist is solely a digital artist, Giclees are USUALLY reproductions of original pieces of art. i.e. printed, signed, photos.

dont understand how you call this a giclee when it states that it is hybrid giclee with 3 colour screenprint. need to derail the geddes release if you are making this arguement which already has it's own thread.
