What do you do when your A2+ finished commissioned artwork is accidentally skrunched in a scanner??!
You don't ring the Batphone.
You don't call International Rescue.
Forget The Sweeney.
Ignore Jamie Oliver.
You contact Stephen Martyn of the WNAA aka - The West Norfolk Artists Association!
Explain the emergency, and hopefully the members experience will come through with a solution.
Having spent the equivalent of almost two solid weeks on the commission I was understandably reticent to immediately put into practice the suggestions. Eventually, having prevaricated for a suitable length of time, I felt it was time to pass the artwork on to the client.
Revitalised after a couple of days break on the Norfolk coast I was ready to implement Stephen's own suggestion...
|The artwork - weighed down by superpowers |
and dynamic anatomy!
I carefully moistened the indented areas of the Bristol Board both sides, applied a smaller piece of dry Bristol Board either side of the damaged corners and then weighed them down with a healthy dose of anatomy books and 'DC Comics - Sixty Years of the World's Favorite Comic Book Heroes!'.
I gave it an hour or so before having a look - flattening off nicely - what a relief!
Three hours later - had I been none the wiser - I'd have no idea the artwork had been damaged at all. Still being weighed down for good measure though...
|Mightily weighed down for good measure...|
The West Norfolk Artists Association - you know it makes sense.
Now I can sell my artwork with confidence, and look any scanner in the lense.
A big thank you to Stephen and all the members who came through with their advice.
