062710-Lifesize Guitar – Supro Dual Tone

June 27, 2010 at 5:45 pm 3 comments

So this is the drawing for my first attempt at creating life-size guitars. After working on this, I am not 100% I’ll be able to create this project as to how I originally intended it. This will be my largest work to date at 40″ tall. This causes me several technical issues to work out – one being I need bigger background paper to accomodate the guitar. I have found several acid free papers in white which should work, though do not have a lot of wiggle room – unless I move towards roll paper. The bigger technical issue will be framing/presentation – this work is large enough that it exceeds normal size limits of materials (mat board and UV acrylic). So as of right now I do not think I will be able to afford this project w/o a different presentation manner, a sponsor or pre-purchased pieces. I’m just not sure yet – I’ll see how this goes, but I may have the scrap the life-size portion of these (which will make me sad)

    You could put up a PayPal tip jar and ask blog readers who are interested in seeing the piece done to donate to it. And maybe offer a postcard-print to people who donate at least a certain amount.

      That is a good idea – I am also going to look into setting this up as a project on kickstarter. I am talking with a musician (who inspired the project) to get his opinion.

the art

All my artwork is made of paper. It is only created using paper, glue, and patience. The works on this site represent the pieces that I am attempting to create each weekday. These pieces are available to purchase and once an original is sold prints will become available. Other work can be viewed on my main site - www.sagworks.com. Larger works are available to purchase as originals or prints through sagworks.com. I am also available for commissioned pieces.
