🎨 Workin’ on an image of Gramps, Grandpa Hill. Perhaps an etching.

A bitmap image of my grandfather, Raymond ‘Ray’ Leslie Hill, created from a photograph of my grandparents having fun at the state fair in Huron, South Dakota in 1945.

It took awhile, quite a bit of tweaking and playing about using software such as GIMP and Inkscape, but I have finally got the photo of grandpa to a point where I can blow it up, easily copy it by hand. So now I have to determine how I am going to use it. I am thinking about an etching or engraving. We will see. I will start playing around. The lack of contrast in his face presented numerous problems.
