Mona

Full-MonaLeonardo da Vinci is one of the most remarkable people I can think of. I created this poster/calendar partly as a tribute to his genius, and partly as an expression of my interest in the print process. The Mona Lisa is made of enlarged halftone dots using Leonardo’s Vitruvian Man as the image in each dot. In the contemporary era of computer graphics this probably seems like no big feat. But I created this image the same year as the Mac was introduced (at our agency we didn’t have our Macs yet, although they came soon after). This was also before the now commonplace enlarging/reducing office copier. Each dot was an individual photographic image, sized and place exactly right to make up the Mona Lisa. Step back from your computer about ten feet and take a look.
