'C, Y, M... K?'

Tonight I re-found this slightly bonkers image proposal for a 'Sonny J' single cover test, created a few years back.  Just as budgets for sleeve campaigns were truly dying out, myself & Patrick Duffy managed one last pop at silkscreening a set of sleeves, the starting point for each being the colour separation of various found photography.  (You definitely needed a decent expenses budget to tackle this.)  With my slightly self taught approach to the technical side of printing in CYMK in tact I took this shot after applying only the cyan, yellow & magenta.  When it looks like this, who needs the black? was my thinking.  Without its application it only enhanced an already pretty unusual image.
