The printing process uses three colors -- cyan, magenta, and yellow -- to create the huge gamut of visible hues. A playful “deviant” is handwritten in the black-and-white spheres that provides graphic support to the foreground spectrum. This illustration honors the simplicity of that printing process in an interesting composition where colors interact to make new colors, while remaining pure.

“CMY all the way! I've spent the better part of 20 years in the print industry and the traditional five-ink process displayed in the design of CMY reached out and slapped me in the face the first time I saw it. I would consider it a badge of honour to wear a shirt that so proudly displays the colours that essentially put food on my table every single day. Ink on paper; there's nothing better!” -- $godofodd
