This is a series of door signs for our studio. At the ARC here each door has a foot square wooden plague that you do what you want with. It is set up so artists can do whatever they want to this. Usually it is something that identifies the artist inside. I like to change mine at least fairly often. Each time I do I convert the remains into a wall piece.
This door plaque was one of the first ones I did when in cell 407. It was inspired by a neighbor, Cory, who came by my studio one day and got his hand a little too close to my bird Sweetie. She did not cut his finger off like she could have but did draw a fair amount of blood. Needless to say unlike most people these days Cory was a man about it and never cried. Not only that but he was man enough to take responsibility for his own actions. Another rare trait these days!! He had been warned that Sweetie love to make people bleed... except me of course. I used this on my door in 407 until I moved down to the cell block on the main floor. After that I started changing them whenever I got the inspiration, motivation and time all at once.
Under construction here,
more works in this series coming as soon as I get the pictures taken...
