I did this for class while learning the gestalt theory which is that the whole is greater than its parts. The assignment was to put a a grid with each square being a half inch on a picture. You then transfer the value of each square from said picture to your paper using small images and words (or just letters). The idea was to worry about copying the value of each square not the whole picture. Most of it was done with a .005 micron pen.
I love this to tears, I'm still outrageously proud of it. And, I will one day give this to her.
(btw this is the cover for the lovegame single.)
