Cyanotype 1981 Poster

Provenance: Six-color offset lithograph. Tones of blue, overprinted with transparent gloss yellow process PMS inks on white 165 lb Warren Patina pH Neutral paper. 40 X 24 3/4 in.

Comment: Alhough this poster was printed by offset litho, we made the plates from hand drawn masters. To create the blended colors I worked with the plate maker and printer plus I mixed the inks. Three sources make the image: A map of the Colorado River, a leaf-like diagram I used for computer animation and the famous woodblock print by Hokusai titled The Great Wave . . . I  was influenced by cartography, computer technology and Japanese culture and also names of my family and Triangle Studio mates.
