Infinity Guitars

I sure do like my red and black at the moment! This illustration is based on the style of the amazing Alexis Krauss from the band Sleigh Bells, and will be available as an A3 print on nice, thick paper from the 15th of November (at Thought Bubble Comic Con in Leeds and from my shop the week after).

NIGHT BURGERS a world beyond terror, a dream beyond imagination

I wrote earlier about how my printing process involves knowing the difference between what photoshop thinks and how my printer actually acts.
Now I’ve updated the comparison with the final colors. The left column is how I first imagined the color. The second column is how I worked out the color separations in Photoshop for the final print. The third column is the printed work.
Photoshop thinks that I’m using CMYK, but I’m actually using different inks.  For example, 100% Yellow ink and 100% Magenta ink typically gives you Red - as seen on Duke’s body in the first image. However, I am using Yellow and Hot Pink (and there’s no photoshop preset for that, which I know about), which create a vibrant orange. So when I was mixing the colors in Photoshop, I was basing my colors on previous print samples. It required a lot of mental juggling… I wasn’t 100% sure how things would turn out! I’m very happy with how the book. 
I’ll be doing more weird work like this in the future. If you wanna support that, buy the book, or even a print!
