I went to Bristol to help Sick boy pull off his "10 year print retrospective". He was moving his studio to Paris and this was the culmination of the time he had spent creating work in Stokes Croft. My last three days were set aside for Copyright and I to do a piece together.
I spent the entire first day cutting the four layers of stencils I needed for my part of the project. We got to the wall early the next morning, measured everything out, and Copyright did his part first. Then I framed it and shaded it.
The final piece:
It was an experiment for the two of us. Copyright had done many mirror images before, but never with the images different. He had to change the hands and shoulders when changing the perspective, and he said it was a good challenge. He liked the result of them interacting, and thought he'd do it more in the future.
For me, I had wanted to frame other people's street art in gold frames for a while. Logistically this was the first time I figured out how I was going to do it. In the future I know I want the frame to be way thicker... and I only shaded the piece with shadow black (or translucent black). It doesn't come across as realistic as I'd like. It solidified to me that the areas of shadow have to be an actual change in color for it to feel the way I want. I do that whenever possible now.
