Art for reproduction. Shaun Waugh at the drawing board uses a 0.35mm Rotring technical pen to illustrate the Jewelled Gecko (Naultinus Gemmeus) in a pointillist illustration style onto a dimensionally stable sheet of translucent mylar substrate. The original illustration is rendered in landscape orientation at an enlarged size, 600 x 450mm.

Right photo: On the lightbox two separated layers of translucent mylar, Kodak pin registered horizontally at the top and vertically along the left side. The gold, manual colour separation drawing is on top of the black, Shaun adds detail to the golden eye of the gecko in pointillist style using a 0.35mm technical pen.
The Jewelle Gecko is based on a pair of photos by New Zealand wildlife photographer Rod Morris, from whom the intellectual rights were purchased by Chrissie Terprstra and Shaun Waugh’s auto-printmaking and graphic design studio Surface Active Art-to-Wear.
The 10 colour Jewelled Gecko art was rendered in mixed media, pen & ink on Mylar and charcoal pencil on coquille-board. These layered drawings were then reduced in the darkroom as intermediate negatives, the negatives were cleaned up over the lightbox and then utimately made into a set of eight screenprinting photo-stencils and which were then hand-screenprinted onto either forest green or white garments.
