It started last summer.
Got a call for 2 overnight Giclees…
OH NO only 1 in stock…Had to disassemble a personal framed copy!
Then I discovered….the customer wanted them both abused, beat up and mangled! This required special attention! They were to be a prop in a MOVIE!
OUT came the coffee grinds! OUT came the steel wool!
I rubbed them in dirt, doused them with grime, creased them outside in, inside out, upside down. Soaked them, dried them, soaked soaked again.
I was so excited and I was happy to spend the rest of the evening manhandling them. Usually I handle the museum quality giclees with such tenderness…this felt like a violation! Abomination!
I woke up early the next morning and roughed them up some more and met the overnight deadline. Now months later I’m able to see the maps as props in the Music video! Great music by the way. You can see it here.
I’m so proud! I love the little surprises of being an artist and contributing to a larger story!
