Laptop Stand with Hokusai Wave

I really like how it came out and I love the interaction of the wave and the wood grain.
My process went something like this:
My mom's always liked Japanese prints (she grew up in Japan) and so I knew I wanted to do a Hokusai wave.
I found a creative commons image (http://nickpoint.files.wordpress.com/2008/12/the_great_wave_off_kanagawa.jpg) and imported it into Gimp. I adjusted the levels and threshold-ed it to make it just black and white. From there I played with it a bit in Inkscape using the trace bitmap tool. Eventually I ended up with what you see there.

Thanks for the lovely derived art! I just cut one of these and I'm using it now :) I had to add a little curve at the top to accomodate the curve on the bottom of my 11" MacBook Air (it was sliding off). But otherwise, superb!
I love Hokusai. He made some real funky stuff... like a picture of an octopus making love to a woman
