Many moons ago, my friend Sabrina asked me if I would make her a poster for her new apartment featuring a tweet that she is particularly fond of. I said, “of course,” and never followed though. Here was the problem, Sabrina gave me little direction and I wasn’t inspired by the tweet. Time passed and I bought supplies for an idea that seemed meh
but I just couldn’t bring myself to do it. As the days and weeks and months progressed I got angry at the tweet for lacking punctuation. You read that right, I got angry at a tweet. I got angry at a tweet, tweeted by @preschoolgems. As you may have guessed, those are tweets that share adorable things preschoolers say. I got mad at this tweet: “I would like for you to say wow when I say that you can never love me again.”
Last night I got over myself and got an idea. It is not a poster – sorry Sabrina – and it is not large in size – sorry again. But it does have the quote and it does hang on the wall. I used acrylic paint and water soluble crayons on a canvas to get a black board effect. In general, my style is a little more messy, eclectic, and romantic. Sabrina’s style is clean and graphic. I found a middle ground. Hey Sabrina, I hope you like it!
