Vectorising Banksy – Camden Town

By November 14, 2007 No Comments

The panorama was captured in front of the Chambermaid stencil by the artist Banksy, in May 2006 on the wall of the Roundhouse in Camden. According to the Camden New Journal Article the maid is a portrait of Leita who worked in a Hotel in Los Angeles.

Using the online tool Vector Magic – see our earlier post – it is possible to quickly and easily create high quality vector output from images and Banksy’s Chambermaid is a case in point.

You can compare the photograph and the vectorised version side by side from here.
