The process of cutting is a perfect meditation time that no other form of art can provide. Great detail my friend.

hey, i'd like to help you, i first need to know if you know photoshop a little bit (nothing tricky).
go have a look on youtube and type "halftone stencil turorial", look for one that shows you how to do line, when you get it, you just open your original image again, repeat the operation but change the angle to opposite. when you're done, importe the first image up to the second and use the magic wand tool to remove the white on the upper image, and there you go, just print it and start hand cuting :)
good luck

Ok I've been interested in the halftone stencil technique and I've seen quite a few different techniques. I even own a copy of Rasterbator (which I need to learn how to utilize properly). I would like to know what technique in Photoshop/Illustrator worked for you and how you were able to separate the layers into colors.

Good god, this is amazing work. A lot of stencil art all looks the same after you've seen a bunch of it, but this is really something else. Seriously, awesome job.

kingstom's avatar
