You can also do this with any picture printed by the offset process -- look at any magazine photo with a magnifying glass to see the "rosettes" of halftone dots printed in the four "process" (or subtractive) colors: Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, and Black.

some of the 50's/60's ? pop art was an extension of that... or at least you didn't need a magnifying glass...

propoganda comes to mind too.

Christian Faur's hand made crayon work is amazing. I also found fascinating his use of a color alphabet incorporated into these works. Thus my posts using "myPantone" palettes program to make some words using his alphabet colors.
