Lately, I've had a few requests to put up a tutorial on the papercut portraits I've been doing, so here it is. Fair warning, it's longish at 10 minutes and 30 seconds because I was trying to be as thorough as possible. I hope you find it useful.
*Update: Hey, those of you without photoshop can posterize images online, for free here:Go to PicNik and upload a photo and then go to the effects tab and click on posterize. Good luck!

Who is the Dude behind DudeCraft?
Paul Overton is a prolific blogger, maker, writer, and ukulele player living in Hardwick, MA with three dogs, his closest co-conspirator, and a lawn that makes his octogenarian neighbors want to call the authorities. He delights in the unusual and can often be found in his tiny studio, whipping up some sort of self-indulgent nonsense for his own amusement.

DudeCraft represents a different kind of tribe in the world of making things, intentionally blurring the lines between, art, craft, engineering, and the good old “Can Do” spirit. Makers of all stripes are welcome here and are encouraged to join the conversation, no matter what their enthusiasms. Guys who knit, girls who weld, it’s all the same on DudeCraft. We are people who make cool stuff, have an urge to share it, and don’t mind explaining how we did it, so that other folks can benefit from our experience.
