Tic Talk

Here is the finished piece I was commissioned to do through a connection Holly has (thankfully she was too busy to take the project herself, as she is the REAL artist, and if I knew more about computers I would insert a link to her website so y'all could see that for yourselves. I'd say something clever like go 'here' and the word here would be underlined and turn blue and when you clicked on it Holly's artwork would magically appear. Unfortunately we'll have to do it the old-fashioned way and you may go to dubdubdub dot hollysharp dot com). But enough about Holly, back to me!

So this piece was commissioned as a gift for a guy named Tic as part of the celebration of his 30 years at a parTICular organization. His colleagues (and friends?) were asked to submit three words describing him, and my job was to take that three-pages-long column of words/phrases and put each and every one of them onto the piece. I believe today is the day he was to be presented with the piece, so fingers crossed!
