Welcome to This Crazy World!


Many people probably have no idea, but Hallmark has a totally killer image archive that holds images spanning at least as far back as Hallmarks existence (almost 100 years). This archive is so cool in fact, that i hear Urban Outfitters has asked if they could partake in its splendor. Every so often, we have an artist here use The Archive in a fun, new way. This month Chris has floored me. The sheer awesomeness and [what some people might call] "unHallmarkness" of Welcome to This Crazy World, i think, makes people double-take on the images. It definitely has inspired me to reconsider my hesitance at using the archives and thinking, "i don't think i can do anything manly with lots of watercolor flowers." Nice work Chris. Click the image to the right to get a taste. I don't know what else to say, so i think i will let the pictures do the talking.

Wow!! This looks amazing! Where's the exhibit at? Hallmark's gallery or somewhere down in the Crossroads? I'd love to get to see it up close.

lorraine: The exhibit is at Hallmark.

I had the pleasure working right next to Chris for awhile and I used to sneak peaks while he was working on this project. It turned out great! One of the best one-man shows @ Hallmark!
