"Pittsburgh Hockey" - print
Originally created in 2009, this print was drawn during Pittsburgh’s road to the cup. With over 73-hours of drawing time over a 2 month period, this design truly captures my love of Pittsburgh hockey. I feel I do my best work when I am connected to the subject and having drawn this piece during the playoffs gave me tremendous energy. Since there is no better feeling than Pittsburgh playoff hockey it was a perfect time for me to grab my stick (my pen) and skate around the ice (my paper), until I captured the essence of this great sport. I spent many hours researching our beloved team and I enjoyed every minute of it. Like most native Pittsburghers, I have black and gold running through my veins, so it was only appropriate to commemorate the “Boys of Winter” in my next collage. This design is meticulously filled with hundreds of images that any true hockey fan will easily identify. You will see Mike Lang’s famous sayings, “Elvis has just left the building” and “Scratch his back with a hacksaw.” Of course the Mellon Arena is in there and numerous player references with tons of history. Look close, do you see what I see?
A video explanation of the "Visual Biography®" COMING SOON!
"Personalization" is when Chris HIDES/ADDS names, words, or phrases INSIDE of one of his existing artworks! It looks like part of the original artwork! ($20). Up to 5-words. People rave about "Personalization" at my art shows because it makes the artwork more of an original. It literally ties a person, family, or organization INTO the artwork. They become a part of the overall "Visual Biography®" of the subject. Add your name, or all the family members names, or "Happy Birthday Susan!", or "Congrats Billy, love Mom!"....anything you need to make it special to you.
Matted artwork is ready to display, or gift! If you CHECK "Add a Black Matte" (+$15) then your 8"x10" artwork will arrive already affixed to beautiful 11"x14" Black Matte. Matted artwork also includes a sturdy backing board, all inside a crystal clear sleeve. MATTED ARTWORK IS READY TO DISPLAY OR GIFT!
If you choose NOT to "Add a Black Matte", your artwork will arrive as just a print (8"x10"). You will need to purchase and matte your own artwork.

You can download or print the accompanying materials for each "Visual Biography®". There is at least 1 piece of information to accompany each artwork. Sometime more. You'll see I am pretty inconsistent with what I have across different artworks since my marketing strategies have developed and changed over the years. But, at least you will have what I have!
