[2008-04-17] Rorschach mecha

A scribble that suggests a mecha shape. Some people see two legs, some four.

I saw this design on a sticker attached to a streetlamp several years ago in Austin. The original was white-on-black. I took a photo with a disposable camera, developed it, scanned it, and inverted the image colors. Then I cropped the robot out of it, automatically traced it to an .SVG file using Inkscape, scaled it up, printed it out, and put it on a t-shirt. The shirt attracted so many comments that I've decided to post the art here so folks can make their own if they like. I wish I could credit the original artist but the sticker, like a lot of street art, was anonymous.
