The restaurant I work at displays a bunch of original artwork by a Miami artist named Carl Meyers.  There is one piece that is a man's face that is made out of google eyes that I have coveted since the first day I saw it.  Since a several thousand dollar piece of art is not exactly in the budget right now, I have only been admiring it from afar.

Then, one day a couple months ago while trying to decide what to put up on the wall in my new dining room, I thought why can't I just make something like that. So combined with my love for Bob Dylan, this piece was born.  It is a 24X30 canvas.  It actually turned out to be a fairly fun activity while watching TV and I may end up doing a few smaller pieces for a friend of mine.

That is really really neat! What did you use for the solid black part, just paper?

I picked up a canvas at the craft store when they were having major pre christmas sales and painted it with black acrylic paint before I started.

It reminds me of the SNL skit with Christopher Walken and his googily eye plants!

Did you draw Bob Dylan on free hand or did you use another method to transfer Mr. Dylan on to the canvas?

It looks awesome & way cooler because it is someone you like not just a random guy. The google eyes kind of have a sequin look to them from far away.
