Working at Prince Art & Framing (formerly on 7th & Main St), I met not only Art students (Antonelli Art College was next door) and Artists looking for supplies, but once in awhile people that were looking for an Artist for their creative side projects or murals or whatever.
I can't remember the guy's name and there never was a contract made, just a verbal agreement and the project fee paid. All I can remember is that he wanted to have a tall, 16 inch wooden doll painted of the woman in the polaroid photo. He never gave me her name, I never asked for it, nor have I to this day of me writing this (12.12.19) met her.
This was to be a surprise Christmas gift to her.
I bet it surprised her all right...
I can't remember what the poem that wraps her body says, but I do know it either 1) Freaked her out, she laughed her ass off, told her friends and family about this dude and his spooky voodoo doll he gave her for Christmas, which she probably got a restraining order put on this dude and throws this doll in the trash leaving a bad memory in her life...
Or... 2) Thinks it's really cool because she's a creative Artsy type of woman and still has it to this day on a table holding her necklaces or something.
Something tells me that #1 happened in reality... :(
16 inch wooden posable figurine
2B Pencils, Sharpie Markers
A spirit form becoming human that has the stars in her hair, her dress is the sky as it transitions into night as she walks through a park with the city in the background.
Slideshow is the progression of the creation of the figurine.
Once the face appears, she comes to life with a personality of her own.
Feet and breasts are penciled in to help humanize the wood. A foot, her thighs, face, neck and forearms are left slightly exposed.
