I finally finished my Wall Art for my partner in the fake Wall Art swap. I think puzzles and pirate maps have something in common, so I took an old puzzle, painted and illustrated it, and cut out my own cardboard giant piece for the middle bit. I put it on a white painted canvas of someone else's painting that I got for a buck at Goodwill last year (knew it would come in handy some day...) The final touch is wallpaper strips burnt at the edges to make it look piratie mappie oldie.
The whole thing -
close up of our hero, pirate Palmer Piersson
And various close ups of the edge pieces -
sorry about the blurry pix - must have had too much rum when aye wuz shooting...
It is white with brown ink cause those are the colors in my livingroom. I had a blast with this swap! thanks for looking.
