Plaid to the Bone

Here's something I've been wanting to try for about two years. For some reason, I either kept forgetting to try it or would put it off. I finally gave screen printing a plaid pattern a try on a new tour poster for Iron and Wine. I finished printing these the day before I left for a week vacation (that and packed/shipped two dozen mailing tubes).
Above you can see the film for the second color in progress. I spent quite a bit of time with a T-square, triangle, an X-Acto, and sheets of rubylith. Of course, I was finding bits of peeled rubylith stuck to my forearms all week, too.

Well, that turned out pretty great, Justin! Created a nice little effect there.
