"IMAGE BUILDING"
By: DUNCAN MISCHO
This is a picture of my friend Dave from the summer.

The first thing I do when analyzing an Image is reduce it to It's greyscale. Here I can see the gentle gradients and transitions in saturation.
Dave B&W
During the next step I create a rough sketch, rendering the the light and dark tones of the image.
Starting the stencil I use my dashed-line pattern to outline features. In the areas of dark tones the dashed-lines stand negative to the image, while in areas of light tones the dashed-lines appear as positives.
Just a little self-promotion.
The stencil is finished!
This piece is part of a long series of "single-layer master stencils," instead of the multi-layer approach of Obey and Banksy.
In-Action!
 
For the final piece, Dave's Neon portrait is displayed over Calvin & Hobbes cartoons.
The colors invoke ideas of downtown Tokyo and the original Bladerunner.
