For the last year I've been using old furniture as blank canvases for illustrative paintings and graphic designs. These pieces serve as art is its most functional sense, and my experiments have led to my new business, Offcut Furniture.
My dining room table is expansive, and has been calling out for something. This idea has been percolating for awhile now. The West Austin Studio Tour provided a deadline to actually get the project done. The illustrated table came to life over a number of late evenings with gold paint pens and my wild imagination. I'm pretty excited about how it turned out.
I finally got around to photographing my grand table (with my good camera), so here you go. Enjoy the slideshow.
