Behold, my current speciality of artwork!
To get a better idea of what it is I’ve done, you should probably see the full view by clicking on it. Anyways, what you’re basically looking at is an image made entirely out of letters, numbers and ASCII symbols, more or less.
It’s actually several layers and sections are missing to give tone. As well, the stacked layers build tone to the image as well. It’s not a very complex thing to do, but there is a fair amount of work involved. I’ve managed to do something to reduce the amount of time it takes ( I don’t bang on the keyboard to get letters, that’s insane), but what really is key is getting the image to render into this style.
I haven’t been doing much of these lately as I got busy with my job and didn’t exactly have a method of printing them as I had left my printing job. However, I do have enough printed works that I’m going to to sell on Etsy and see what people are willing to pay for them. As well I’m going to look for local outlets where I could sell them as well. Mostly at this time I aim to print them on 22×30 sheets of nice traditional print paper, but I’m considering going smaller, which risks losing the sharpness of text in the image. We’ll see.
But for now, here’s some other works I did and a Work in Progress.
