Guitar Commission-Part Three the conclusion

Well, the guitar commission is finally finished and delivered to the customer.

I’m still not quite sure if I like it with or without the hands better,

but it doesn’t matter since the customer is happy with it.

Just for fun, here’s a look at the progress again:

1-acoustic guitar

2-Sanded and primed

3-background roughed out

4-background details added

5-addition of the hands

6-hand details

7-re-assembled, signed and sealed. Only thing missing are the strings.

Now it’s going to live happily ever after mounted on a wall for display.

If you’d like to commission a used or broken instrument for display,  or any other artwork

email me at themilkeway@gmail.com

Oh and I’ve added a commission gallery where I’ll be putting all the artwork that I receive as commissions.

Cheers for now!

Guitar Commission-Part 2 and 1/2

Just a quick note to let you all know that I have finished the guitar.

It is currently signed and sealed but yet to be delivered.

I’ll be delivering the finished piece to by customer tomorrow at which point I will post the completed photo’s.

I would have finished sooner but our car was stolen Friday which needless to say, had an adverse effect on my creativity level.

With this commission finished I can focus my energies into creating things for the November trade show.

I’m planning on having an assortment of prints for sale, a bit of photography and of course some original artwork.

Oh and the business cards are all finished and printed looking quite artsy if I do say so myself 😉

Well I guess that’s it for now.

Cheers/G-night

The colour of music

This is a piece I did back in 2005.

It’s an old guitar I got as a Christmas present one year when I was feeling especially ambitious.

I thought it would be a good idea to discover my hidden musical talents.

However, once I realized I couldn’t just pick it up and play I decided musical talents were overrated.
