Cracked Mirror-bad luck by Barrin84 Cracked Mirror-bad luck by Barrin84
Well, now I may be going towards the superstitious types of people. After breaking this mirror and drawing a self portrait for my ART101 HW, I ended up straining my back for drawing 5 hours straight, inhailed a glass shard from the damn mirror, coughed it out and now have swollen glands in my throat, and I easily get food stuck in my esophagus now. Yep... looks like 7 years of bad luck for me.... At least this didn't come out so bad. ^^; This was done in Conte Crayon.

Um, hi. I don't even know if you use this site anymore, but it's worth a go... I'm currently working on my final project in art, and whilst looking for inspiration, i came across this... it's amazing, i love the whole idea of a broken mirror (although I'm wondering if you've endured 7 years of ad lack since:P), and the way you can co-operate many images together using it... the only thing is, I need to know a name of a published artist who actually uses a similar technique.  Do you happen to know anyone who did anything similar to this? It would be a huge help if you did... thanks:))
