RGB are the primary colors for additive (translucent) light, CMY are the primary colors for subtractive (reflective) light. The colored light you seen on your computer screen is additive; it's all made up of RGB. But printed ink is reflective, the light reflects off the page; it doesn't go THROUGH the page; since it is subtractive, it uses CMY. I suppose you could use Blue Red Yellow for printing; painters I believe use them as primaries; add b & w paint and you can make any color. Except for fluorescents and shiny gold, etc.
Before CMYK printers used RYB (and the only reason black was added is due to impurities in the CMY ink. CMY, in color theory, should combine to make a solid black, in reality it makes a muddy brown). RYB and CMY(K) is subtractive color. RGB is additive.
I'm pretty sure Darren meant RYB. My head hurts.
Wasn't aware of a filter. I saw a Selena shirt from Mexico that looked 4CP but was just blue and red. I did some experimenting and basically you copy the cyan and magenta channels and paste them into a custom blue and red channel, respectively. You still have to get jiggy with the levels/curves to try to get it as close to full color. I did a poster that way; came out pretty sweet.
It's Andy's call. I have a huge collection of films from a grocery store from the 60's. They are like steaks, fruit, produce etc.... ANTWAY, before CMYK there was RGB. CMYK is RGB evil brother. So back then I did a shirt for the Melvins and I used a steak dinner plate. We ran the Red, yellow and then blue. It looked amazing. Dude.
Thanks guys! I did kind of have a smirk on my face while designing! Yes, we may even try just the RGB films that way we wont get suck a strong black. I want everything sort of backed off. I'm really glad this is going to be a big screenprint! Thanks again! :mrgreen:
Casey, exactly, all we have to do is to work. again, today we're fucked. No mail, no Fed Ex, I have orders that need to go out and I'm just stuck. So workie, workie all day. This is a direct result of CABIN FEVER!
Oh, as for the "Peel Slowly". I just ripped that from the Velvet Underground/Andy Warhol record. It doesn't mean anything, just another element of "huh"? It would be super rad to make the edition to really have skeletons underneath the sticker!
That pie looks delicious, almost as delicious as this entire poster, I love swinging groovy chicks with hooks for hands... Darren, is there any special reason for the "peel slowly"? is there a sticker placed on top and when you peel them off there are bones underneath? that would be awesome....
