Filters for Furs

When the face of a handsome man is digitized, low resolution iPod pictures may become graceful.

In 1989 at New York's Irving Plaza, a benefit concert took place to help raise legal-defense funds for art critic and curator Carlo McCormick after he was tossed into a Mexican jail. The Psychedelic Furs played 5 songs. The band was a stripped down 3-piece of Richard Butler (vocals), John Ashton (acoustic guitar) and Knox Chandler (cello and acoustic guitar).

One night I went there: icepickphil

While discovering those delightful acoustic versions on youtube, I took pictures of the computer screen with my iPod and applied Photoshop image treatment filters.

    A note on these filters: Awesome for blogs and private artwork. Not awesome for graphic design or things you wish to sell as they are seen as kitchy.

    Halftone techniques are great, though. You should check them out. Or Duotone. Duotone can have some great results as well.
