Someone suggested if I made a bunch and put them next to each other they’d still work as Beto signs:
How it usually works: The minute I finish a book, I find something that would’ve been perfect for it.
I got this sign from Aesthetic Apparatus back in 2014 and it’s hung in my studio ever since. An evergreen status for parents of young children.
There are stone monuments scattered throughout my neighborhood — fancy signs announcing the parks, etc. I find them sort of hilarious — they’re so serious, and they look like big tombstones. (They had to cost a fortune!) I like to go around and take pictures of them and then make a game of cutting them up so they announce other things. The only rules are that I never add, only subtract, and I try to make the edits as simple as possible.
(For this one I cheated just a bit and rubbed out letters with the clone stamp in Photoshop.)
