: Is this art?
: AlexF 30 January, 2003, 04:23:08 PM
Hi. I don't know the ettiquette of this, but can I plug my own webpage here? At the moment, I guess it will only appeal to 2000 AD fans, but what else is worth obssessing over?

So anyway, I vandalised a host of back progs, and you can see the semi-artistic results. Go to:

It's fun. Or you could just rack your brains for where they came from. Click on the Frosty to let me know what you all think...

Great idea - they look good to me.
Make some nice wallpaper actually.
Better off scanning the bits in and mixing them digitally if you ask me.
I'll add it to my 'projects to do when I retire' list.

I'm pretty sure this is Art...

i like the idea of people cutting up progs.you carry on. you mua[backslash]st express yourself as an artist.
to really get a feel and challenge yourself. i woudl suggest you buy as many progs 1-2-3-4 as you can and do it with them;
go to ebay now and begin.

Thanks for the feedback. In fact, I bought new old progs to savage - you can get them for 50p in most London comics stores, which isn't a bad deal.

Clearly I ought to do it digitally, but I have no scanner of my own. Also, it's fun playing with scissors, paper and pritt stick.

But, but, but - someone else could have bought those comics...

Disapproval. Sorry.

gee, it's funny, but doesn't it hurt the progs when you cut them up?
: Re: Is this art?
: LARF 04 February, 2003, 03:25:17 AM
you could have used photoshop rather than kill your progs...or was that deliberate??

Excellent idea though and i think it works.
