So prior to heading out on Christmas vacation, I bought myself (yes, yes, I am one of those types) and bought some Adam Hughes products from his store envy or justsayah.com website. I ordered a Wonder Woman mini Hydra statue and a magazine with his artwork. My last item was a print which wasn’t available yet for shipping. I wasn’t upset as the other item that came with was a Fairest poster he had drawn. So, with them in hand, I trotted off and drooled over them. Yes, drooled. If you haven’t seen the maestro’s work, google him. His photo-realistic style, line work, and colouring is amazing. I can sit and look at his work online for any matter of time. Just looking through and imagining each line and his process. Now, I sat waiting for the last item to show. My print. Then, lo and behold, it appears. Delivered by my friendly USPS carrier yesterday afternoon. I frantically raced to open it and when I did, O M G. It was beautiful. It was a Deja Thoris print (see below) and worth every penny. I wanted to hold it and learn from it (how it was made, the type of paper, and the printer used to create it.) Instead, like the Collector from Marvel, I quickly grabbed my studio deco frame and sealed it away from my oily fingers. Now, it sits proudly on my desk waiting for a space on my wall where I can view it at all times. It makes me think of the future and will, one day soon, someone have one of my prints on their wall to inspire them. I hope so. It inspires me. Find something that inspires you and do it.
