I made this by inverting the digital image taken of early '70s spin art. Our machine was plastic, i think; maybe the models advertised on the spin-art page are industrial strength.
I made dozens of cards like this and then went door to door in our neighborhood trying to sell them. This was sometime around second grade. I did a lot of door to door selling around that time and i hated every minute of it. I was so desperate for money for something (no clue what it was, but that aspect of my personality hasn't changed--there is always something), that i fought through it and tried to convince my neighbors to buy shit that they didn't need.
As a side tangent, one of the things that i dreaded the most was when an older girl/young woman answered the door. I could never tell if i should talk to them or their mother. I decided to usually ask for the mother, which worked to my benefit no matter who answered. I didn't do it on purpose, but i think that i made half of my sales by asking a woman if i could talk to her mother when she was the mother. This was 1972, well before mothers and cougars were on anybody's radar. I like to consider myself a pioneer.
A foreshadowing of my business acumen came when a younger kid from my block bought out my entire stock of spin-art cards and paid with a check! It wasn't even a check that he found or stole, he just wrote it on some paper. I'm wishing that i could say that i was only 3 or maybe even 2, but no, i was much too old to be that naive.
Someday, i want to have this painted on a full wall with the center of the 'eye' making the window. Maybe you'd like to buy some shit to help me finance the project?
