Everybody Needs a Little Effort.

There is a fine artist down the hall from our workrooms who was having a couple of problems. He needed something.
See, sometimes folks just need a little effort thrown their way. Unmentioned, un-asked-for effort. Too many times we forget that.

So we came up with this fabric sculpture-card that references what he does and how this is, for him, a new beginning for him and his work.

The man rising from the center came from the promotional card for an afro-centric show in the early 2000s, the interior fabric was some leftover millennium fabric we have had tucked away since Y2K and the gold print is from a project we did for a customer before moving to Chicago.

We are fond of the leave-it-and-run method, so we attached the loops to his doorknob, knocked, and ran.

Remember that to make someone’s day a little brighter, to help someone see that they aren’t alone in the world and that someone is thinking of them and wishing them well/supporting them is one of the best things you can do in life. It doesn’t have to be a big deal, just do it.
