Mosaic Photos, Part 1

I have been creating some photo mosaics and have decided to start sharing with you. Ok, and I use the word create quite loosely. I used a piece of software called MacOSaix, a pretty sweet piece of software if I might add.

Here is the first image.

It is Richard Garfield, the man behind the game/addiction of Magic the Gathering. So I got a hold of a Magic Card Image Collection (Thanks MWSHQ team) and ran the collection and the picture of Rich through MacOSaix and few adjustments later, abracadabra boom!

This one here is of my friend Mel

The images are sourced from a search result of the tags "flowers" and "roses".

I have a few more I am working on, but I can't get them the way I want them just yet.

Enjoy for now!

Microfiche Earings - Craft Experiment

I have decided to try to get back in touch with my creative side, and thanks to my partner BJ taking me to FireEscape a couple weeks ago I felt that creative spark that I have been missing.

As I was going through my stuff for our move to Montreal, I came across a bag full of Microfiche. I remember saving a bunch of these when I clearing out some shelves at a warehouse I use to work at. Specifically these were from old parts manuals for tractors.

Anyways, one day, while procrastinating, I started cutting up the microfiche just for fun. All I used was a basic art knife (cut on self healing mat), spiral punch (Lee Valley Rocks for cool tools). The earing hooks were acquired from BeadWorks a couple blocks away. The aluminum rings where from my chain mail supplies that I acquired from The Ring Lord.

Oh and from the designs, you can probably guess I like video games. Especially classic look.

Tetris -With these ones I decided to do two shapes, to help illustrate the Tetrisness.

Space Invaders

Ok, so not a game based one. But my first ones I made.
