Fall preview cover

When the Oregon Daily Emerald student newspaper editors wanted to kick off the student year with a flashy two-color Fall preview edition, I created two full-page graphics with a collage of scenes representing campus life.

Wanting the graphics to have detail and variety despite the short deadline, I scavenged a few photos from the newspaper's archives and inked the scenes on Clearprint over a light table.

For the two shades of color, I then inked two separate overlays which could be converted to different dot screens by the Copy Camera.
