Playing with Stripes!


With this as inspiration


The above image is from Letterself at Flickr.

I had some fun making a few 5 x 7 inch postcards ...





I like what I came up with but I want to try a few different things. I like how the original has figures - two forms glued to appear to be one, the man part of a stripe but his torso and arms cut out ... just a few kind of optical illusions that I didn't quite pull off.

  1. great technique. I have such a hard time merging disparate images into something cohesive and cool looking. It always looks like it should be easy, yet I can rarely pull it off.
