Berge (Mountains)

I have been working on a series of automated drawings based on a small program I wrote. The application translates pixel values of an image into lines in four directions (horizontal, vertical, bottom-left/top-right, top-left/bottom-right). By overlapping these lines, various shades of grey are created, thus translating the bitmap image into a line drawing. The resulting .svg vector file is plotted out with archival ink on 14 by 17 inch paper (Strathmore, 80 lb.) The drawing process takes, depending on the complexity of the image, 3 to 4 hours.

All drawings are for sale and can be purchased here.
