Chalk Drawings

Since I am large on large art , I'one thousand all for taking average size images to the re-create shop as well as getting them blown upward to be actually impressive.

Often , if you just biggie-size ordinary art , it becomes magically frame-worthy

Case in point: the chalk drawings I did on the sidewalk outside my domicile.

I wanted to make something primitive inwards its appeal , together with then bump it upwards a notch with today'sec applied science to get in unusual.

Skirting the Law

Did you lot know that if y'all have printed images like calendar photos , greeting cars , or mag pages into Staples or whatever copy middle , they won't re-create it because it violates copyright laws?

Here's what else falls into the same category:
  • Musical lyrics
  • Architectural drawings
  • Cartoons
  • Newspaper clippings
  • Maps
  • Paper currency (if reproduced same size)
Of class y'all tin can brand copies of copyrighted or trademarked cloth if y'all take permission. It's non as difficult every bit it sounds. My Staples store told me fifty-fifty Google volition turn over you written permission to role their images.

And of grade in that location are plenty of gratis and populace domain sources of images together with graphics , from the Library of Congress to The Graphics Fairy.

Sometimes the simplest approach is to create your ain images. That's what I did amongst a slice of chalk as well as my photographic camera.

I paid only $3.89 summation tax to have the photograph I took too place on a nix effort printed poster size every bit an "technology/architectural impress." It's a well-kept hole-and-corner that this blueprint copy is the economy style to get when y'all want a large , black together with white reproduction. Poster-sized full-colour images will ready y'all dorsum most $12 -- nevertheless a bargain , fifty-fifty though the newspaper is not heavy.

My advice: Look through your ain photos. Or have around new photos you lot know will wait expert reproduced jumbo size. What can you lot make as well as legally enlarge for framing?
