Debbie Carlos and a dream

Sorry for the silence, the bathroom is done and looks amazing but I'm not posting any photos yet because I may or may not, but totally did, pitch it to a few publications. It's a pipe dream but a friend reminded me this week that you can't achieve a dream without trying...so I tried. 

We'll see what happens, cross your fingers for me!

Moving on...........

I've had these posters from Debbie Carlos saved in my secret Pinterest board (you know you have one too) for a while now but just recently came across them and thought I'd share.

They are printed in halftone, using a plotter-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, almost looking antiqued. It's very similar to how images are produced for newspapers. Held up close the images will look like a series of dots in various tones of gray to black, but looking at it from afar, will reveal a photograph. It's such a cool, graphic effect!

They are really big, 36" x 48" and won't break the bank at $50.

Here are some in situ......
