Framing The Show


The flury of activity continues here in prep for the gallery show and the start of school and next weekend's baltimore comicon. Finally (thanks to Barb, a professional framer) I finally have the last of the art for the "Monsters under the Bed" show framed. I got my frames in Friday from Framingsupply.com which is a good place, easy to deal with, especially since you can talk to real humans on the phone to answer and take your orders. I also picked up a few things at the local Michaels, like a few wood frames and decoractions like the skeletons and fingers for the frame of the Zombie painting.

I got some glass cut at the local Ace hardward, some black spraypaint for the natural wood frame I got at Michaels which I used for the Zombie painting and spent a whole day just putting the frames together, hangers, embelishments like the skeketons and fingers etc. While it was fun, it's also frustrating at times--but it's part of the process and also a lot cheaper to frame things yourself. If I had both the DCAD Faulty show and the Monster show framed, it would have been a lot of $$$. Now back to the world of storyboards. Time is so compressed these past 2 weeks, this week will be even more intense since Tuesday is my first full day at PAFA.

Man, o, man! That frame is insane!

I hope you have a great show, and I'm hoping these kids will release my chains long enough to come out for it.

best,
mike

Thanks MR. H. I understand if the wee ones keep you tied up. The show goes until October, so there is plenty of time.
