That's why we see similar images done over time. Same pin pricked images were what artists and "graphic designers" worked with 400 years ago and I couldn't grasp how they did what they did. Fascinating!!! Explains so many engravings, sometimes reversed. I pictured engravers using a printed page and carving a new engraving by tracing an image. Yet they all are different on some level. If we want to know Bacon, Elizabeth, and anyone else back then we need to understand as much as possible about their lives and how they lived. We see paintings that survive today, knowing that some artist, usually well-known, painted it. We see variations that are similar, copied and even painted by the same artist. It has been a question in my mind for many years how they did it. Now days we take a photo, and can even work with it to create versions. In the time of "Shakespeare" we had no cameras. Yet we had artists and "graphic designers. " I wonder if we as humans live long enough, if our graphic design images today will end up on some beautiful gallery someday? 😉 One of my college projects for Adobe Illustrator 20 some years ago: It's on Google and has been stolen numerous times. But I have the original file and can make into a highway billboard, and even bigger. LOL Love the idea of a giant billboard!!! Needs a caption, though - or a thought bubble. Why don't we move it to the anti-stratfordian cartoon competition topic and invite suggestions? No prizes - only fun...
