At the beginning of 2013, I set a goal to do something with my hands to contrast with the constant life in front of the screen. I finally finished my first “art” project this past weekend and documented the result. I had a stash of old, torn jeans that were just taking up space and instead of throwing them out I decided to have some fun. Here’s the process and end result.
1. Find a silhouette of the NYC skyline
2. Replicate the silhouette by cutting pieces out of old jeans and arranging them on a piece of cardboard wrapped in another shade of jeans.
3. Use some fabric glue to attach the pieces to the canvas
4. The result - now all it needs is a frame
