Aches, finally complete.

Remember the old project Aches that I was working on a few months ago? It was a series of 5 prints about aches and ghosts. The prints themselves came so easily to me, but I have been toiling for months trying to find the proper box/folder/cover to house them in. I bought grommets, folders, rubber bands, and other experimental items just to toss them aside.

In the end, I came up with a pocket folder that looks like a medical folder. It doesn’t have any fancy doodads, but I think it’s appropriately simple:

aches-cover1
aches-cover2
aches-cover3

Fast facts:

  • Edition of 10
  • Prints: Peschia White paper
  • Folder: Stonehenge Black paper
  • Size: 6.5″ x 8.5″

Making of Aches, a print series

Anything worth doing takes time, tears, and midnight snacks.

Aches┬ábegan on February 6, 2013. As you can tell from my enthusiasm, I didn’t think much of it.

March 2013
The little thumbnail incepted me — I couldn’t get the image out of my head. Truthfully, I couldn’t find the right book/story to put him in… so I just pinned him to my board.
