Every commissioned piece is a brand new challenge, and this piece was no different. The biggest problem to solve was adding a word bubble with text. I opted to build the word bubble on top of the mosaic itself, and using both plates and bricks, created the text. To mount the word bubble, I surrounded it with “headlight bricks” which attach both below and to the side.
The piece is based on Roy Lichtenstein’s “Drowning Girl” which was itself based on a old DC romance comic book. This one was a pleasure to work on, and hopefully the person whom it’s for gets a kick out of it. If you’re looking for a custom piece of your own, check out our Commissions page.
