But not for these celebrities and public figures. Public personas aside, they’ve got a collective creative secret: They’re all great visual artists.

There is a progression in a successful artist’s career. First, the toil (of several years, sometimes) in the trenches to reach base camp, then the beginning of the climb up the mountain of fame, then reaching a point on the gradient where a magic elevator suddenly appears and creates a tipping point that starts to hurtle the artist to the pinnacle with no further effort required on his part. Finally, a period of success-building-upon-success, of walking on clouds, until disability or death intervenes to close that chapter. The last period is the posthumous one, when the artist’s work in enshrined... Read More

CHOOSE ALMOST ANY SPOT TO SHOW YOUR PROMOTIONS!
When placing your Photo Tex on a standard painted wall, make sure the wall has been previously primed prior to painting (otherwise the paint or adhesive may come off). Concerning newly painted surfaces, make sure you allow 30 days for out gassing preventing bubbling. If you place your Photo Tex on a pebbly, textured surface that has used eggshell paint or a very porous surface (i.e. brick, cement walls, stucco), you may receive poor results, although it has worked in most cases. So you may want to test first for a couple of days. Avoid... Read More
