I KNOW. It’s been so long I almost forgot how to access the dashboard here. So lame.
That said, let’s discuss celebrity, shall we? Specifically, celebrity art.
If anyone had ever asked me if I would have the image of a celebrity in my house, I would have answered “No.” without hesitation. My taste in art has always been a mix of vintage, abstract and family pics, but has never involved celebrity. I think subsconciously my theory was: I don’t know said celebrity, so why would I want them in my house? I hadn’t really thought about it much.
Well, ALL that changed last week when I saw Gina Julian’s fantastic Christopher Walken giclÃ©e portrait. He was meant to be mine.
She tells a little of the back story on why/how she made it here. I mentioned to her how much I loved her work, and asked if she would be willing to print another one I could buy, and it turns out she was planning to sell him…so I gleefully snapped him up-after I made her sign her it, of course!
He is perfect. It’s really unsurprising that he can hang in a room with a 70’s orgy sofa.
CW is in a temporary frame since I have house guests coming in a few days and there was no way I could get him properly framed that fast. The CC put together some window sill molding (it comes already routed with a groove inside for stability-he is mounted on foamcore) so we could get it up right away. A down and dirty $20 solution until we can get it together for realz.
She also just made a David Bowie portrait, with more to come!
Because she’s clever, she is making them available in sizes that fit Ikea square frames, as well as larger, smaller and custom sizes. I knew you guys would want to know how much, so here is her
30″x30″ = $145
22″x22″ = $80 (fits Ikea)
20″x20″ = $65 (fits Ikea)
12″x12″ = $30

A friend of a friend just posted this last week, and I had to share. I think we need a day dedicated to speaking with the Walken comma…don’t you?!
