A Christmas Card Homage

A Christmas Card Homage! This year I decided that what better way to thank my clients, colleagues, collaborators, friends and family than a specially handmade limited edition Christmas Card. So with that idea,  I put it into practice and designed four different cards all in Homage to the great John Baldessari! I have since a child been an avid fan of this genius conceptual artist and couldn't think of a better way to pay my inspirational respects and produce some work inspired and homaged to him.

The source visual material is from the old black and white classics from the 1930's and 1940's, the traditional Christmas films, interworked with that 'Baldessari' style, with an added element of glitter of course! The cards are made in a Limited Edition of 40 plus AP's  (each card in an edition of 10) and are signed on the back of each and every one. Just a little thank you to all for the support and guidance you have all shown over this last year, I look forward to working with you all more in the not too distant future.
