Believe it or not, the image you see above is a digitally-assaulted photograph, based on the same root image from which I derived last week’s Monday Morning Art, which was the abstract-looking color bar sort of thing.

After the jump, you can see the original image, and a few of the steps along the way that saw the above image of me and Melanie in Pittsburgh turn into this.

You can also click on the above image to see a larger version.

Below is the original picture, taken at arm’s length at Mount Washington, overlooking Pittsburgh.

Now look what happened when I ran the image through a coarse halftone-screen (I’d changed the background by this point).

I then rotated it 90 degrees, and repeated the coarse halftone-screen, which gave me this image.

I colored in the white spaces, and wound up with last week’s art. It’s nearly mildly interesting, eh?
