Tick color

Maybe I'm missing it... but how do I change the color of the tick marks?
(the actual marks, not the labels).

I would like gray tick marks, not black...

Thank you... Russ

Take a look at the artist API tutorial

  http://matplotlib.sourceforge.net/pycon/artist_api_tut.pdf

which covers all the main objects in the matplotlib figure and how to
customize them. The final two sections "The Axis containers" and
"The Tick containers" will be particularly useful. Here is an example
which sets some properties on the yaxis tick lines:

for line in ax.yaxis.get_ticklines():
    # line is a matplotlib.lines.Line2D instance
    line.set_color('green')
    line.set_markersize(25)
    line.set_markeredgewidth(3)
