So, for my birthday today, I was given the gift of framing. Specifically, I took two prints in to be framed.
Back when I was in college, Mel Blanc passed away. I have always enjoyed the Warner Brothers' cartoons, and my parents knew it. This was during the heyday of the WB Store, and my parents bought me this print:
It made me cry the first time I saw it. I hung it on my wall everywhere I lived, but the frame ended up delaminating, and so it got shifted to a closet. Today, it gets an additional matting, museum glass, and a new frame. (The lithograph "Speechless" is still available here.)
Christmas 2014, I bought this print:
Little was I to know that just a few months later, Terry Pratchett would pass away. I was thrilled when I got this, and was slightly teary today as we were designing the matting and frame to go with it. (There are still prints for "Discworld Massif" available at Paul Kidby's site here.)
I will post pictures in a couple weeks when we have the final products hanging up
