Like all of my work, it usually starts from a photo/painting/sketch/all of the above. I will then scan & alter the image digitally then print it out. Once printed, I tear it to shreds and manually reassemble it. Then I will scan again and alter it digitally. Sometimes I will scan/print/shred repeat at least 2-3 times (10 has been my limit so far). This piece is 8.5x11 inches and printed on a high quality glossy photo card stock. I have yet to ever print this one. Although, once printed I will immediately edit the file and save over top to ensure a 1 of 1 print each time.
