Paul Smith, the man with extraordinary talent was born in Philadelphia on September 21, 1921 with condition which impeded his speech & mobility
"When typing, Paul used his left hand to steady his right one. Since he couldn't press two keys at the same time, he almost always locked the shift key down and made his pictures using the symbols at the top of the number keys. In other words, his pictures were based on these characters ... @ # $ % ^ & * ( ) _ .
Across seven decades, Paul created hundreds of pictures. He often gave the originals away. Sometimes, but not always, he kept or received a copy for his own records.
As his mastery of the typewriter grew, he developed techniques to create shadings, colors, and textures that made his work resemble pencil or charcoal drawings."
This great man left behind a collection of his amazing artwork that will be an inspiration for many.

I saw on Ripley's I think, a guy who does portraits and can make famous people with typewriter art purely from memory.

I think your blog is pretty amazing. You take a lot of time to research each idea and find endless links. I like typewriter art especially, I make my own ASCII art so have a real appreciation for the planning that goes into making this. My own are much simpler, smaller too.
