"Joe Pa" - print
When Joe died I was moved to draw a tribute to his life and accomplishments. Taking hundreds of hours of research and 56-hours of drawing time, I learned all I could about Joe. Regardless of the what transpired at the end of his life, there is no doubt he was an amazing man and helped many, many, young men become all they could be...because of him. And although I am a Pitt graduate, and never was a fan of Penn State, I wanted to draw something special as a tribute to him. The media can be cruel. Inside includes everything from his birth in New York, to his college Fraternity, to his college days, and on to coaching. The artwork includes many of his important stats, as well as some personal affects, and of course many references to Happy Valley!
I even sent one to Sue Pa, and she wrote me a very nice hand written note back. (SEE PIC) And now, to know that this artwork is hanging in the Paterno's home, is truly humbling to me. To know I was able to give a family some comfort, during a very difficult time for them, was very humbling to me. Look close, and look again. Do you see what I see?
A video explanation of the "Visual Biography®"
"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.

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!
