Hidden Treasure

During a visit to S.C.R.A.P. this weekend, I became the lucky discoverer of some 2006 test prints made by the talented Mr. Dan Stiles out of Portland, OR. If you’re not familiar with Dan’s work, he makes some of the most strikingly beautiful poster art you can find out there for bands such as The Decemberists, Death Cab for Cutie, Wilco (the list goes on and on), plus brands like Nike and promotional work Bumbershoot.

Because of this, I was pretty pleased to stumble upon this glorious bounty. So was the drab office wall they now call home. And by the looks of them, coupled with the fact that S.C.R.A.P. is run on peoples donations of art supplies, I have to believe they were donated by none other than Mr. Dan Stiles himself. So thank you, Mr. Dan Stiles.

Here you can even see the different screens they were made from during the test prints in the second image.

Update: A few weeks after posting this, GrainEdit posted a great interview with Mr. Dan Stiles that you may want to check out as well.
