I can't draw. Not a bit. So the idea of me doing a sideshow banner seems just plain silly. Since being silly is become a life long habit, I wanted to find a way to indulge myself. It is also a fun, creative exercise to find ways to get around my lack of talent. I wonder sometimes that if I had talent at anything else if I would still do magic.
Well, I did a little research on the web and after experimenting on my own. I created my first banner. I may not be able to draw. I know layout and I can letter. And I like the mystery aspects as originally created by master gaffmeister Doug Highley. Although, he would not like my color scheme.
This is a 4 foot by 5 foot banner. Hemmed. Gesso. Painted with Acrylic Paint. The hemmed seam was folded over and sealed with Gorilla Glue to add strength. Grommets all around. Finally, 5 coats of a flexible matte varnish to make it waterproof.
What will I do with it now? Maybe I'll keep it. Maybe eBay. If you want, make me a offer.
