    I took this picture across from Madison Square Garden while walking to school, thought it was really graphic, so I used it in my lithography class.

    I greyscaled the image, then randomly chose red as a color overlay.

    This is the resulting lithographic print made from two aluminum plates. The red plate wasn't really inked evenly, and the black plate wasn't inked enough. 5 prints.

    Really like number 2. Reminds me of how some art in comics looks.

    The "effect" is the result of a Xerox transfer onto a metal plate. The details get kinda choppy though.
