Color palette of glorious hues of the golden age of comics


Ed Piskor sez, "I located an 'antique'
chart of the exact mixtures for the 64 colors which were used in
comics and newspaper strips for decades and I created a PSD file to
share so that people can use these hues digitally. It's sort of a tool
that also will remind guys to practice some restraint when doing their
own work. I can't think of a reason anyone would need to use thousands
of colors on a page, but a lot of colorists insist on it. Forward this
to your illustrator friends."
