Circuit board art
From a message that's included with the 'project'...
I've been doodling and drawing all my life and been meaning for a long time to create a piece of art only with circuit board materials and manufacturing process. It's finally done! Enclosed is a circuit board art piece that I designed — you have one of 580 from a limited edition run.
It's called 'Dreamer', featuring many doodling elements that dominate my notebooks since forever.
I started it by drawing on card using fine pens, scanned it, and then traced it to vector form. Finally I converted it to a PCB form using Inkscape and PCBmodE. I've added some artistic features and textures to exemplify this PCB+art hybrid. My friends at Eurocircuits created prototypes and manufactured it beautifully (2.4mm FR4, 35μm copper foil, two-pass soldermask with gold finish).
I hope that this piece-of-art-for-the-discerning-individual could adorn the wall of your workshop, cubicle, home, or doomsday bunker, and be a conversation starter. Send me a picture please ;)
All the best,
London, May 2018
