Test Prints / Happy Accidents
The beautifully abstract nature of messing up. These are the prints that float around our studio when we're in full screenprinting mode. We use these sheets to test colors, clean out screens and test the print for accuracy and proper printing. It's fun to see how colors overlay and play when there is nothing at stake. They sometimes inspire new color combinations for future prints. They also sometimes come out more interesting than our actual work, probably because we don't painfully pour over the alignment, registration, line quality, etc. We are never considerate when making test prints, they are usually rushed and thrown around the studio. But the results can sometimes be fantastic. Try to spot which prints are in each one.
