The insects are buzzing heavy with the actual temperatures.
Built along the metallic line.
Experimenting with mosaics.
Not long ago I was in contact with Arthur Gugick (Flickr account), who I admire for his pioneer work in seeking different methods of creating mosaics with the bricks. He was a very friendly and helpful guy and I wished our conversation would have continued. Now I know what happened as recently I heard that he had passed away.
That made me very sad. Another mastermind with the bricks like the great nnenn gone far too early.
Rest in piece and my condolences for his beloved ones.His artwork will live on! This mosaic is dedicated to him as I had him and his studies in mind while creating it.
Usually I don’t manage to document any progress of my stuff, but with the new work space improving I managed to grab a few rough progress steps.
My intention was to create a mosaic which is more than just a mere conversion of a prior photo edited digitally with some kind of mosaic program. Although that tool was initially involved I tried to part the part midway and try to give it a more individual touch – with the risk of failing. The coloration happened later and was done manually without any digital pre-editing.
