color print

This may sound sarcastic, but it is not intended to be... Who/what is Pantone and why does anyone care what color they pick?

uuuuuuuuuuum….. that’s a really good question, actually.

Looking at what comes up on Google, they’re a company that’s like…. the expert on color? They advise the printing industry and any other industry that uses design and color on exactly which colors to use to get the desired effect.

I enjoy the color of the year madness because it’s just fun to see what comes up.

“Sweet Forgotten Things” still has to be one of my favourite pieces from 2012💖   I painted her with lots of emotions flowing through me.🌊 I’ve always been connected to my art and hope that my art has been able to connect to other people as well.💞 I thought before today ended I’d put her out there for a #ThrowbackThursday. 💗 She’ll soon be restocked on my estore this Saturday ✨ I think she could make a great gift 🎁 this holiday season and hope you do to✨ now I’m off to keep burning that midnight oil with some crazy artistic energy! 💖#camilladerrico #art #tbt #print #surreal #popsurrealism #artwork #anime #manga #popmanga #tentacles #rainbow #dripping #comingsoon #beautiful #inspire #connected #stayconnected #painting #poppainting #oilpainting #beautiful #artoftheday #colorful #oilpainting ps link to my store is in my profile☝️️✨

Ideas?  Thoughts?  Samples?

I’d love to do it on the computer because I don’t have time to get our photos printed, shipped and then pasted onto the damn tree.  Like, is there an App for this that I can just upload some of our Instagram photos into and color print the whole thing out?

lol i bought some of my own prints from society6 just to check their print quality ((because i’ve been getting so many requests about uploading my art so people could get them as prints but i wanted to make sure that the quality was nice)) – was a bit surprised at how the different the colors were – they were very faded and yellowish (so i pulled out the mini comic prints) ;; the magazine mockups were a bit dark but i think it’s okay *__* i still kinda liked the prints from the local shop better ((the family portrait prints are so smooth when printed large AAAA so happy)) :0 anyway i left the magazine mockups in society6 so idk

these are terrible phone photos im sorry i was in a rush hahaha

This gif is comprised of the pages of a lithograph color separation proof book from the Louis Prang papers (Prang was one of the premier lithographers in Boston in the 19th century). This particular lithographic print is made out of 18 different color plates - the pages on the left show the individual plates and the pages on the right show how the print looks after each color is added. With apologies to houghtonlib for biting their style, but this was an excellent idea!

For more on the process of chromolithography, and this proof book in particular, see this blog post.
