The walls of my Nerd Cave are what my wife often calls “busy.” I may be a little dense, but I don’t think she means it as a compliment. But however you want to describe my art collection, it’s all done by design. I love the crowded look. I don’t necessarily design the room for other people, but I do enjoy watching folks walk in for the first time and not quite know what they should look at first. Or second…Some people end up looking like a kitten watching a laser dot bounce around.
One of the things I’ve tried to do in choosing art is to look for things that fall outside the realm of traditional rectangular, framed art. I want different. I like oddly shaped pieces, 3-D art, and such.
Recently, while lying around contemplating my life, I typed “Death Star” into the Etsy search box and stumbled upon Rebecca Gallaher’s Death Star art stenciled/spray-painted onto an old vinyl LP. My Spidey sense went off with that “I gotta have it” vibe so in the cart it went. You know the rest. My almost fully operational battle station arrived last week and I love it…
As you can see from the pic above, the piece looks great on the wall. I love how the dark blue background color Rebecca used blends in well against my wall. The Death Star image is really cool and the gold paint she used for the stars catches the light and really sets it off. Everyone who has seen it loves it.
The cherry on top is the fact that Rebecca’s prices are really reasonable. She does requests and tells me she’s planning on doing another Death Star. So if you like it, drop her a line or keep an eye on her shop–beckosaurus. I have a feeling this won’t be the last of her work I get for myself. And now that I think about it, these would make great gifts for the favorite nerd in your life.
Well folks, that’s about it for now. Until next time…stay nerdy my friends.
