Colouring the past…

I had some copies of the black & white Cerebus “First Fifth” plates and hand coloured four sets in the same way I had done the original 30 sets back in 1985: assembly-line style. That is, I started with the lightest colour and did only that colour on each of the six plates. Then did the next darkest colour on each. The end result is four sets that look pretty much identical:

… and that’s enough of that.

I don’t know how I did THIRTY sets all those years ago.
