"Happy Valley" - [NO LONGER FOR SALE]
AT THE REQUEST OF THE UNIVERSITY, THIS ARTWORK IS NO LONGER AVAILABLE. [NOT FOR SALE] If I sell one they will fine me approximately $30k for use of thier logo. Which is why the price is $30k.
The University has sent me a cease and desist letter requesting $30k annually for 'use of the logo' and requiring a hefty percentage of the sales. Being a small time artist, I had to comply and stopped selling them immediately. If I sell another one, the fine and legal fees would amount to $30k. Which is why the price is $30k.
Before PSU sent me a cease and desist letter, I drew this artwork to capture the entire Happy Valley and State College experience. I did a lot of research to make sure it was an in-depth, meaningful, nostalgic, and a personal experience for every PSU fan. Within this unique piece, you will find numerous State College buildings, dorms, restaurants, bars, and tons of sports history. I couldn’t forget to add “the Creamery” and of course Joe Pa makes a few appearances; as well as hundreds of other State College references. I put countless hours of thought, research and investigation into the smaller-internal images within this collage, before I put the pen to the paper. I interviewed a diverse group of folks consisting of current students, recent alumni, older alumni, and die-hard sports fans so that every State College fan can relate. I hope you enjoy this collage as much as I do. 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.
