BENDAY010 applies a repeating row of benday dot patterns very similar to halftone dots. Popularized during the pop art movement of the 50’s, benday patterns were widely used to simulate colors unavailable to printing presses such as greens, purples and flesh tones. One of the most successful applications of the benday dot patterns was in the early comic books where it inspired artists such as Roy Lichtenstein to pick up the art form and blow up individual comic cells into massive works of art such as Torpedo…Los! Once applied to your selected source image the vector traced benday dot pattern is placed within a newly created Smart Object layer were it is easily managed or exported as paths to Illustrator.
