I wondered really how this piece would be received, especially since it's so different from my other Celebration art. So I guess here's a little heart to heart exclusive for you all... I sincerely missed being part of the Celebration art show. I felt that after the Disney purchase there was a shift in focus on the art show and there weren't accepting as many "animated" styled art prints. So I started to try different styles and was passed over again for the last two events. So this time around I went back to my roots. I've always created a ShadowBox for each of my art prints, and have even offered a few commissions, so I started to research if I could make this thing a reality. I found a company that could manufacture the ShadowBoxes, but they were all cut-paper instead of printing. So I decided to adapt my style and give this a shot.It’s def different and very cool. Spence can you give us some insight into this? I know you’ve done Shadow boxes in the past, but was this a newer idea to pitch or had you been wanting to try this for a past Celebration? Did you receive any resistance from the Art Show people? And finally why this scene?
Thanks! Sorry to disappoint you all, but the first one was the only one that I cut a built myself. I've been working with a manufacturer to get them all produced. One of the stipulations in the Lucasfilm contract is that all of the 250 pieces have to be identical.Spencer, that shadow box is amazing. How long does something like that take to cut?
HAHAHAHA! That's funny! so, um, I guess I should say sorry?...That's awesome! Can't wait to learn more about it. I'm number 98 and bought it before I knew it had so may secrets.
BTW Spencer, are you doing the YouTube videos again this year? I think I probably bought 2 or 3 more prints last time than I intended to because of you.
