A Master{Piece} (Echo Park Here & Now)


Hi everyone! Happy Monday!

If I told you I've been working on this page since April, would you believe me? It's true. Really. I tried this photo with so many different collections but it just never came together. It wasn't until I ordered a few pieces from Echo Park's Here and Now collection that it finally clicked (and boy am I relieved to have it done).

There's a yearly event here called Community Arts Day. Part of it is an art show displaying work done by students in our school district. This is a pop art piece Alexa did following the styles of both Andy Warhol and Wayne Thiebaud. Even if I don't end up keeping the original (although I think I'd like to have it framed), I'm happy to have it recorded in her scrapbook.

I added the white text in Photoshop so the photo would resemble an art poster.

You can check out Echo Park's Here & Now collection in the Paper Issues store. Use the code HELLO for 20% off your order, plus shipping is free on orders over $60.

Have a great day! I hope it's a creative one. :)
