Remembering NYC 2012
Feeling good about finally getting on top of all the projects on my never-ending to do list. This one has been hanging around since last summer! (pardon the pun…)!
So, the story goes something like this — A girlfriend and I are in NYC, for work/trouble and meet up with her EXTREMELY talented cousin, Aaron “Sharp” Goodstone. We hung out, they caught up and I got to check out all his amazing artwork! I suggest you check him out at one of his exhibits and buy some art peeps! He is one of the originals in his genre, so don’t wait, get involved…
Ok – back to the story…Because he is awesome, he gave us each a limited edition print (matching of course, so we wouldn’t fight, ha)! Ahh, he knows so well the workings of the female brain!
Anyway, it has taken me forever to get my sh*t together and frame it – mostly because I was initially daunted by the prospect of putting the darn thing up on the wall and maybe more importantly…I’m

Before you get started – Cover your work surface — this seems like a no brainer, but believe, I have ruined many-a-table in my time.
Here are my steps, now go forth and mount up!
* Frame & Frame board (cut to size) *Spray Adhesive * Paint * Your Artwork
OPTIONAL: Choose a color and spray your frame (unintended Sainsbury’s plug, maybe they’ll hook me up on my next shop?)
Follow the images to complete the body and you’re laughing!
Once you have mounted the print to the frame backing (or foam board, as I used), you simply put the frame back together.
And yes, the green lantern frame was another spray project, I like to spray stuff… JJD x
