Many Moons


Gravel & Gold

Design: 2014

Collection: Fall 2014


I adapted a previous print, "Udon Dots," to make "Many Moons" by off-setting a fill screen to form a field of unprinted and double-printed crescent moons. By highlighting the overlap, I hoped to direct attention to the unique qualities of silkscreen printing.

The received wisdom is that purple prints don't sell. But purple is the socially acknowledged color of girlfriends, women-centric power, and ladies who attend full moon gatherings i.e. the core Gravel & Gold customer base. Purple "Many Moons" sold great for us.
