Here it is. Finally finished and finally uploaded! Dan and I talked about doing a cutout of a meal, and since I've been missing English breakfast (that I can no longer get since moving to the US), Dan decided it would be a funny cutout art.
Anyway, I think this came out ok... I think.

I have been working on an English Breakfast cutout piece for a while. The colouring and shading is now finally finished. And I now have to spend hours trying to set the colour settings for the printer and see which option gives me the best result. Oh fun times... That and trying to align it correctly for the Silhouette to cut these shapes out is going to be a challenge.
Check out the finished cutout!

After over a year Dan has finally completed his 43-presidential-caricature-sheet. No matter how much he sped up during the last few days, the style remains the same, and he has captured their essence in the simplest forms.
The best thing about this of course is that it's educational. And that you can see every one of them in one specific style (and in colour!). Dan has also been learning more about them as he created this series. You can read his trivia on his blog here.
Personally, I like how this sheet shows the trends throughout history. Long hair, facial hair, big collars, small collars. Bow ties, regular ties...etc. And he did such an awesome job with the likeness of all of them (except for Reagan, eh Dan?).

Oh yes. A NEW toy. Silhouette Cameo wasn't enough for us. After doing research on printers for about 2 months I got this baby for about $200 this week. Woop woop! And this printer is the biggest "desktop" printer I have ever seen. It's about 27 inches wide. Just look at my phone I placed next to the box as a comparison!
