Comic strip stylee deck designs I was asked to produce by Faltown Skateboards. I used ‘The Rasterbator’ (an online image processor that can create huge dot matrix images) to fill in the dark patches of a photograph taken from the Hubble Space Telescope (hope the copyright is not too tight). This hopefully helps to fuse together the bold vector graphics with the background.
I also like this effect because it massively simplifies and vectorises the background, contrary to the infinite nature of the subject (space) giving an interesting juxtaposition. This technique was mainly inspired by comic book print patterns and also the video, Parachute ending, directed by Will Sweeney and Steve Scott. Check it! (if you dare ;/) Also check out Scott’s website http://www.stevescott.com.au/
