Original Artwork Arrives

Posted: February 17th, 2010 | Author: | Filed under: production | 3 Comments »

When you pay an artist to do artwork, at least, a full-on professional, you often buy the rights to artwork but not the original artwork itself. It’s cheaper, and if you run through a lot of contractual artwork and don’t feel like building a gallery, then you don’t really need it. In my case, this painting obviously has special meaning to me, so I bought it from Lukas.

He shipped it to me and it arrived today:

A Package Arrives With Cool Stickers No, thank YOU Lukas Tweetie Investigates The Artwork Why Hello Marc

It’s even more beautiful in person. It’s different than the final artwork in a few ways (mostly missing details added in Photoshop) and to me that makes it even more unique. I intend to be one of Lukas’ more insistent and positive references, should he ever need a reference. (Who needs references when you have a portfolio like he does?)

The original is not for sale, in case anyone’s wondering. Not anymore.

I’ll be researching doing a poster soon. The big issue is finding out the minimums and what the costs would be. If it’s crazy or if there’s not enough pre-orders, then I won’t do it, so let me know if you’re interested….

    Looks beautiful– and seems very proper for you to have it hanging on your wall.

    Thanks again for taking on this amazing project and seeing it through. And thank you for including us all in the process. It’s been a fun ride and I’m anxiously awaiting the end result.

    Don’t forget to tell us all what your next project will be. After you get some well-earned rest and relaxation, obviously.
