Dr. Woohoo!, a hispanic designer, made an awesome book about probably our favorite subject: COLORS! "Color Visualizations: Exploring the Circle, vol 02" is a great book that any person who loves great visuals should take a look at.
From this own words:
New Mexico’s finest – In search of the perfect color palette, Dr. Woohoo’s artwork explores the visualization of colors. Woohoo uses software he developed to generate his artwork by extracting millions of color pixels in each image, analyzing and organizing the color data and then building the composition with absolute precision.
Embracing the past, Woohoo uses archival pigment inks when printing the 16 x 10? (40.64 x 25.4 cm) single editions onto art-, rice- and japanese papers using a variety of techniques including underprinting, overprinting and gelatin transfers onto frescos.
The book includes over 100 new pieces, a discussion on color between Dr. Woohoo and Darius A Monsef IV, founder of COLOURlovers, and a secret web address that enables you to enter a private gallery that displays the final prints, special editions, as well as the opportunity to purchase the single editions.
