This image looks simple, but the process is not… I took a photograph then cut it in half. I then selected one single row of pixels along the side and copied them to a new canvas. I copied and rotated that line of pixels around again and again until it created a circle. Lastly, I copied the upper right corner of the circle, brought it back into the original document, and put it between the halves making it look like it is bent.
Imagine an image like this printed and put in an L shaped frame that curves around a fireplace mantle, or something. I think that would be quite something. Quite the conversation piece… Others simply edit photographs – I warp and bend them.
