Swarm 580 wide

This is a piece from 2003 called Swarm (53 1/2" X 41 1/2"). Just getting around to scanning the transparency [taken by Bill Orcutt!]. A larger version is here. Photos showing how it was made are here. It's all drawn with MSPaintbrush and run through the printer multiple times. A detail (flipped vertically) of one of the overlaid drawings is below:

good idea! (paint > print > scan > print > ...)

Thanks. As I recall, the drill was paint> print> put on wall and stare> paint> put pages back in printer in the wrong order by mistake> print> curse> put back on wall (with mistakes)> paint (compensating for mistakes)> put pages back in printer and then two stick together during a several page print run> curse some more> [etc]
