Pop Art Portrait Lesson - Elvis Presley

Our Pop Art Portrait of Elvis adopts a technique taken from the art of Roy Lichtenstein which features the use of Ben-day dots, a method of printing tones in comic books from the 1950's and 60's. The Ben-day dot printing process is named after Benjamin Henry Day, an American illustrator and printer.
