While I was waiting for copies to be made at the copy center of a well-known office supply store, I saw this machine opened up for servicing. Its complex sculptural details fascinated me and I did this sketch. The plastic door opens to the left and the works slide out, including the four circular (cylindrical) toner packs which you see at the center. They are Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, and Black. In my opinion the color copy machine is one of the triumphant inventions of modern technology. A large amount of my work depends on color copies. If the machine didn't cost a fortune (more than a car) and if it were smaller, I'd probably buy one. There are smaller laser color copiers that don't cost too much but they do not print on thick paper, which is necessary for quality prints. I am in the market for a new high-quality printer which can handle all my printing needs in the home studio, but am not ready to commit the bucks to it. The economists tell us to spend money to end the recession, but I'm not willing to do my civic duty just yet.
