At long last…
‘Got Them Swole Eyes’ is done! It was a much longer endeavour than originally planned, a real test of mettle and endurance1, but we made it. And I’m happy to report that the recipient was appropriately surprised and stoked, which made all the finger prickings worth it.
Finished size is 8×10 on stretcher bars, and fits perfectly in this frame I had laying around for a rainy day. The frame itself has been painted teal and copper and given an aluminum plaque, which was polished and hammered crookedly with grease and love one late night. My neighbours love me.
