The background of this is a very small detail from an Edward Hopper painting. At this time, everything I did had a starting point in something else. The rope is from a free boat listing magazine I found in Alexandria, VA, called The Salty Dog. I tried to use it elsewhere too. It’s a great graphic. The title is something I found in a Richard Ford novel.
I think this is my favourite thing I have ever made. Everything about it came off. I’m very proud that I made it.
