Weaving inspired images

  

Street art



Plotter printing - a large format printer mainly used to produce architectural and engineering prints. This kind of printing lends a rough and textural aesthetic to the image. Held up close the images will look like a series of dots in various tones of grey to black but looking at it from afar, will reveal a photograph. ... an interesting idea for a large scale embroidery?
