Bearings Blue Ridge Mountains Prints

Illustrated, Screen-Printed Posters Celebrating the Blue Ridge Mountains

Services: Illustration, Print Design


About the Print: This screen-printed poster is the second in Bearings' ongoing series of artwork celebrating destinations that are a little off-the-beaten-path (a follow-up to the Outer Banks poster). Bearings commissioned an illustration that would capture the rolling, gentle waves of the Blue Ridge Mountains – a part of the Appalachian Mountain range, starting in northern Georgia and spreading up the eastern coastline.

About the Design: The illustration is a 3/0 screen print. A half-toning effect was used to create detail shading effects despite the more limited use of color.
