I spent all Sunday and many hours after that painfully scanning three A1 drawings on a A4 scanner.
I looked all over London but couldn’t find anyone scanning high-resolution drawings.
Which frankly astounds me. Don’t other people want their large work scanned? Apparently not.
Each drawing needed about 9-11 overlapping scans, then I needed to stitch them all together in photoshop.
You have to start at one corner and overlap them, top to bottom and left to right, using the ‘multiply’ filter to align the details of the drawing as closely as possible. Usually the scans are at various angles so you have to gently rotate all the pieces to get them to align.
But I finished this one and it’s available as prints and skins on society6.
