Testing Halftones

I have never done a color halftone screenprint before. I had old instructions from when I took screenprinting in 2001 or 2002, but those didn't even work with Photoshop anymore...so I needed to test it. I used a picture of Ernie to test it, and I think it is pretty fun. I am really loving the art of these color halftones...there is something magical about the process, putting one color down and then another until you get the whole image. Additionally, I think the look is really quite appealing and the quality is perfect for what I want to use it for...there is this fine art meets industry, handmade meets technology, and probably best of all, past meets present.
