Pal and artist extraordinaire Dave Cooper is featured in a post on Boing Boing this week, with a link to his photos on Flickr documenting his painting process. Dave says, "This can be a nerve-wracking stage, but it's usually pretty straightforward. i use an antique projector (that you can see in my "some of my favourite artnerd things" set) and a cheap brush pen. the image that's in the projector isn't the original pencil drawing but rather a smaller print-out. the final painting will be about 7' wide! as you can see, i work on unstretched canvas stapled to the wall. it's only once the painting is finished and photographed that i stretch it onto a custom made stretcher."
