“Drop it!” Bullet Hole Collector’s Series
Exclusive Limited Edition
25 Fine Art Photographs
I am proud to announce the release of an Exclusive Limited Edition Collector’s Photo Series. In January 2013 I printed my 1st “Drop it!” photo on Aircraft Grade Aluminum, it was an instant hit at my art shows across the West & Southwest. This year I decided to take this popular photo to the next level and create a one-of-a-kind Collector’s Limited Edition Art piece. And boy did I!
Here is a little about the lengthy process that goes into making each and every piece in this Exclusive Limited Edition. To begin, the photograph is printed on a 16″x16″ piece of Aircraft Grade Aluminum (metal). Then I searched high and low for an expert marksman who could shoot a bullet hole in the metal photo. Through a referral from a friend I found an Ex SWAT and Tactical Team Instructor who was up for the task. It was a little odd explaining my “artists vision” to this imposing Ex SWAT man but he seemed to think it might be fun to assist me with this project. My idea was to shoot a bullet hole in the cowboys hat making him so angry that he wanted to shoot back, hence, the bullet hole edition idea of “Drop it!” was born. You really can’t get more WILD WEST than this!
After much planning and scheduling Gary aka the expert Marksman, and I finally set the date to get together and “shoot the cowboy”. I wasn’t even sure if this would work or if the bullet might destroy the photo – it was a bit nerve wracking but I was prepared to sacrifice this one photo if it didn’t work. After the set up Gary then skillfully and precisely shot the bullet hole with a .44 Magnum exactly where I wanted it – his aim could not have been more precise and perfect! I am so glad he provided me with ear protection because it was LOUD! I looked like Princess Leia with those “cinnamon buns” on my ears but I was glad I had them. I have a short video of the shooting process that will take place for each photo in this unique series. Click the link to go to YouTube.
Once the shooting process is complete it’s time for me to assemble the piece. I had a metal artist make me a custom 20″x20″ 18 gauge metal backing for each photo. The artist rusted each piece to get the perfect patina to compliment the photo and give it that rustic Wild West look. Once I receive the backing I then prepare the metal photo to be mounted to it. I carefully measure and mount the photo to the rusted metal backing and when it’s complete, the photo stands out from the rusted metal backing 1/4″ to highlight the bullet hole. Yes, you can see the rusty metal through the bullet hole – very eye-catching! And finally, I add a hanging wire to the back of each photo and then sign and number each piece on both the front and the back. So as you can see there is a lot of work (and passion) that goes into each piece. Each photo in this Limited Edition series of 25 pieces is a one of a kind creation. No two will ever be exactly the same making it perfect for that discriminating art collector or Old West enthusiast. Once the edition reaches 25 it is considered SOLD OUT and will not be produced again. I will provide a signed Certificate of Authenticity for each piece upon delivery, adding additional value to this Collector’s Mixed Media Art piece.
