They bleed...



I'm not a huge environmentalist, but we need to do what we can.

Another cut paper piece. I like the image, but it could use some work.

My cut paper experiments look like they were created with Illustrator. The texture from the paper is there, but...I need to change it up a bit. I get discouraged easily. I just need to take my time, and let things flow. I like the lines I created for the Black Keys poster...hmmmm....

There are nine "I"'s in this post. Maybe I'll start referring to myself in the 3rd person.

I like the concept.

You can go ahead and take the time of doing an actual cut paper illustration or you can do what I do. I find textures which I scan and place in PhotoShop over line art. If set the layer style to multiply. The you can see the line art below and erase the part of the scan you want to get rid of. Using multiple textures in this manner gives the cut paper affect with out the tedious cutting. It also gives you the ability to be extremely accurate.

I only mention this because you sound a bit frustrated.

Thanks for the tips, Josh.

I am a bit frustrated. As usual...
