What is CMYK?

Cyan loves goggles and the Internet. Magenta loves gossip and social media. Yellow loves paintball and video games. Key loves skateboarding and digital media.

What do you get when you put those together? The Gamut Middle School Technology Club!

The Creators

Laura Knatt (Contact at lauraknatt (at) yahoo [dot] com)
You may know her from her previously completed comic Taiki or her Pokemon fan comic Ultimate Quest. She graduated from the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising with a degree in Graphic Design but making comics is what she really loves doing.

Hayley Larsh
Aspiring writer, she hopes that one day she can write well enough to have a novel published by DAW or TOR. She also has the most adorable cat in the world.

The Process : What do Laura and Hayley do?

Laura came up with the concept of CMYK in 2010 while still working on her other comic Taiki. She met Hayley who helped her finish writing Taiki and together they worked on forming CMYK. They brainstorm the episodes and Hayley writes the final script while Laura draws the pages.


What is C.M.Y.K?
CMYK refers to the four inks used in some color printing: Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, and Key (black).

Why is Key not named after a color?
The main concept of how this comic is colored is based off of the color process of CMYK (see above question) in which the “K” stands for Key and IS Black.

Why are some characters colored in some Episodes but not all?
Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, and Key will always be colored in every Episode. Side characters are only colored when they are considered a main part of the story in the specific Episode.
