PAST HONORS PASSED
Five years ago, I created the above image. Words and image. And in case your eyeballs are broken, the text says:
No one will ever forget that strange day
When the fattest pink pig at the fair flew away
The onlookers theorized great explanations
But the truth was an answer with no complications
The fat pig was angry where his life was heading
A destiny gruesome he’d always been dreading
In his fat heart he knew how he wanted to be
So he did the impossible and flew himself free
Two weeks ago, a lovely woman emailed me, asking if she could pay to use the image in prints and on memorial cards for her Uncle’s funeral. For real.
There’s really no bigger compliment than having someone tell you they connected with something you made. But to have that connection be so strong that it also seems like the perfect way to pay tribute to a loved one you recently lost? HUGE compliment.
This is the second time I’ve been asked to have my art present on keepsakes for funerals. And both times happened within the last two months. Can’t say I ever imagined it happening, but I’m flattered that it did, without a doubt.
I apologize for not knowing the name of the young woman who did this off-hand, but if it was you, please let me know in the comment section below!
