New Year, New Stuff.

Well, 2011 is over. It was a wild ride but it was well worth it.

As usual, its been a while since I’ve updated my blog but now I have a project in the works which has been on my mind for some time now. I’ve had this idea for a long time, at least two years, and I’m finally getting everything together to get it done.

The final product is going to be a mosaic, roughly 8′ x 4.5′, made out of beer bottle caps. The biggest hurdle I’ve faced up until now, aside from the obvious need for thousands of bottle caps, was an image to use as a basis for the image. Well, I’ve got an image now. I’ve had the image for a while, but up until recently, I haven’t thought of using for this project.

Using The GIMP and Inkscape, two open source and free graphics programs, I’ve taken the image and created a mock up of the final product.

I find it interesting that I’ll be using this image because of the subject matter and the medium being used. A young woman sitting on the side of the street, smoking, playing on her phone, made out of beer bottle caps.

Anyway, below is the mock up with a link to my flickr site where you can view a larger version.
