For the book Wimpel om de toeter (Pennant around the horn) Rik has opted for a Riso stencil print of digitally made drawings. During printing, Rik played with different screens that, in combination, produce surprising images. Sometimes small flower patterns appear to arise, other times one gets the impression of a strange noise looming. Yellow, purple, and black enter into an exciting play of colors, in which the special printing method helps to determine the final image. The story begins in a light, yellow tone and ends in a more purple and darker hue. Rik himself was closely involved in the book’s production process and kept a close watch on the running of the Riso duplicating machine in Stencilwerck’s studio. Action was taken if something was not quite to Rick’s liking, and adjustments were made on the spot. The results are impressive. Riso seems to give the subconscious of Rick’s work just that little push towards a place that is simultaneously accessible and inaccessible. And the adventure...will not be revealed here. You will really have to buy your own copy of Wimpel om de toeter (Pennant around the horn).
