it's nucking futs to think about all the super advanced technology that we have at our fingertips to produce the fastest and brightest art . there are a shit ton of drawing programs out there in the world today. converting images to half tones, sepia tone, black and white line art, inside out..ect...ect... don't get me wrong, i'm down with the tech. i have a HP SCANJET 6300C scanner that converts my art directly to a vector format. this scans in every line, bump and dust to a tee. it doesn't round anything out. it's fuck'n awsome!!
the key tool for make'n prints for me is to trace my drawings (try to clean up lines and unwanted images) by useing this 20yr old tracing table (it's my wife's from when she was a kid).
