Halftone Silkscreen Print

  After printing 7-8 colors on my silkscreen book (which I will post fully soon), I wanted to see if I can get away with printing the next ones using CMYK halftones. This way there are only 4 colors- Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, and Black.

    It was a great idea in theory, since it was less work printing. But, man, registering the halftones are a pain! The process does give a different look with the print, though.

    I used an old digital illustration (featuring the War Sadhu) to test it out. Right now, I'm sketching out the new prints, but I haven't decided which way I'm gonna print them- halftones or solid colors.
