Excuse the consumer level pic, but I wanted to show that I am, in fact, making things happen here at the JHP offices. Slow but sure progress is being made on all fronts, the new TheTeamlab.com website is in the final phase of programming. I am meeting with some of the TL heavy hitters tomorrow about putting the finishing touches on over the weekend.
The same can be said for Chemishlifestyle.com which should be live in some form by the time you read this.
The picture above is of myself preforming one of my least favorite tasks, stretching mesh on some new screens for some silkscreen jobs next week. The mesh comes in a roll and must be stretched with equal tension (X,Y) in order to take emulsion and pass ink through the screen. This is accomplished with a jig, like my home brew version shown above. Four wide clamps pull the mesh taut and it is fastened to the frame with a distant, industrial cousin of super glue. The glue comes in a bottle that almost guarantees that you will get it on your fingers. After the glue is spread on the screen it is sprayed with a catalyst that instantly cures it, again, ensuring that your fingers will be glued together. It also gives off very strong, nasty fumes, hence the respirator.
More to come. -J.H.
