The Halftone Series began with a assignment prompt that required only two colors per illustration. I took it as a challenge to make a piece with as many color variations as possible, which is where halftones became useful. It’s common knowledge that blue and red make purple, but purple is such an obscure color that there are varying degrees of shades. So I tapped into that. I layered halftone patterns on other halftone patterns, and I wove them into my artwork to engage the eye.
