The was colorized by first photocopying it only in blue on a color laser photocopy machine, hand-coloring the with red, green, orange, and yellow ink on the color photocopy, and then photocopying the resulting hand-colored copy in full color. The color version of the was created as the front of a 's card, which was hand-crafted and sent out to family and friends.]
