Have you ever fallen in love with a pigeon? maybe not, well maybe it's time. This CMYK print is an ode to the much-maligned but often misunderstood pigeon found in every urban area. In this case, it is the wildlife of choice in Hackney, east London.

The process: CMYK is a four-color process of cyan, magenta, yellow, and black. The printer creates four different screen tints, one for each color. Then it applies small dots to each screen tint according to how they should combine to form a single color per dot. Each color overprints the next to form the colored image. The combination of cyan, magenta, yellow, and black can yield virtually any color distinguishable by the naked eye. To make this print really stand out I added a metallic magenta & green to the plumage area. You can see the results in the above pictures.
