I commissioned thee great Airi Maeno to make silver medallions based off of my drawings. This drawing was from my book Pompeii. It’s something I could imagine someone would wear two thousand years ago. A simple medallion of a loved one. A portrait. Something permanent to challenge disappearance.
Airi Maeno is one of my oldest friends and an amazing artist. She studied with her Father, a master jeweler. Airi transferred my drawing and made a mold in an ancient tradition and cast the medallion in silver. These are the tests. The artist proofs. We made an edition of ten. We are selling six of them. 99 bux postpaid in the States and 123 bux postpaid overseas. Please DM me (@santoro.frank on IG) or email me firstname.lastname@example.org and I will happily send more pics. Thank you Airi (@airimaeno on IG). This is one of my favorite collaborations ever xoxoFS
Connor Willumsen, Comics Workbook’s starting centerfielder has generously donated his time. That’s right buy Connor’s time to help the Rowhouse Residency. Connor will draw whatever you want within reason. He likes to draw his own version of Kirby characters or Moebius characters or Daredevil or Batman. If you don’t know this is a tradition in Comics. At conventions artists often offer to do “con sketches”. Like you get your favorite artist to do their version of a famous or not-so-famous character. So you can ask for something weird but it’s more fun if you keep it in the strike zone, capiche? Commission price list is below. Thanks! Email me with questions santoroschoolATgmail. Drawings are 9 x 12 inches and are stunning in person. You gotta have one! Buy yourself that X-mas present for yourself in July!
