Prairie Fire, the state flower of Wyoming, blooms in early summer around the Mountain West and is so incredibly bright red it can look luminous. The ones depicted here are a slightly shorter, purple stemmed variety that I see most often around my hometown. I illustrated this piece digitally on my iPad and then turned them into riso prints. Risography, or riso printing, is a digital process that maintains some of the great elements of hand printed work. Risograph machines digitally produce pieces, but in a process that is similar to screenprinting in that each color must be printed seperately. This creates a lovely grain and interesting effects from layering the colors.
