You Break My Heart - BW by SoleOne You Break My Heart - BW by SoleOne
"You Break My Heart Into A Thousand Pieces And You Say It's Because I Deserve Better"

Alright, a new record. 27.500 handcut squares ([link]), done in 11 days (+1 for painting). Pretty pleased with the result. Had some challenges here and there though.

First time using paper in over 1,5 years. Though it's easier to cut, I'm moving back to acetate right away. It's much sturdier, can handle a punch and does NOT (and this is the main thing) require spray adhesive. On the other hand, it does completely fuck up your hands and it eats knives. Oh well.

That said, I'm thinking of moving it to the streets, start doing laaaarge halftones. Not sure if it's possible, but it could be cool. Be sure to check out the coloured version as well: [link]!

Enjoy!

Another question :=> Didn't you used any reference ? I'm currently trying this technique but I have not much drawing skills and it seems very hard to make anything like this in "free hand" mode.

Wainting for your answer :)

So basically this is one layer made of "pixels" of different size that blocks a different amout of paint to simulate a figure ?

I love this. I think I'm gonna give a try with this technique :)

Halftones are obviously best appreciated from a distance but i love looking close up at this one so you can see what actually went in to makining it. What size canvas is it on? I have started my first one on card but i usually work with acetate and i have some nice thick stuff on order so im already planning my next one on that:)

Did you manage to get out on to the streets with a halftone, if so how big did you go?

I use acetate as well. Not the most pleasant material to cut, but by far the best material to cut halftones from. I didn't put it on canvas, I ordered some 400mgs paper to allow me to experiment a bit with colour without wasting loads of money. If I recall correctly, it was about 70x90cm, without the black borders.

And no, I never put it on the streets. I'm kind of on a stencil hiatus for now due to circumstances. But I'll be back and who knows, maybe I'll put it out there.
