Re: Mind the Trap


This one is an homage to Banksy, a street/graffiti artist in Britain who posts realistic stencils on bare walls, often using signs or objects on the wall within the design.

To answer a question from the pre-comment-fix thread: Ackbar is actually pulled from a heavily hand-inked/penciled scan that I then ran through multiple Photoshop filters and then into Illustrator (to get the outline/stencil effect). The bricks are an artificial repeating pattern (not a photo), further manipulated in Photoshop.

FYI - for more on Banksy, the Wikipedia entry is quite good, and this painting, which I saw when trying to think of something humorous for "Mind the Gap" was the inspiration for this design.

Not that it matters but that's not a Banksy piece but a Dolk.
