Ben Aronson, a Boston-based painter came to ZMP with the intention of making an edition of etchings based on one of his oil paintings.  We color separated the image in Photoshop and made 3 photopolymer plates for the red, yellow and blue areas.  We then made a copper plate for the blacks, using a photo process for the line work, airbrush aquatint for the tone, and added drypoint and platework by the artist.
