if you managed to miss the hot groupon deal for carter kustera custom portraits, well, you really blew the pooch, folks. these suckers (in a slightly larger size) retail on mah boo jonathan adler's site for $750, but for a limited-ish time, mr. kustera was cranking them out for $700 less. not sure about you people, but if JA signs off on something, i'm pretty much sold, so i ordered up the steve-and-ginger special (which turned out better than my wildest dreams). these hand-painted silhouettes also bear your choice of tag line, so with audrey and raina's approval, i went with
STEVE: possibly suffering from canine tourette syndrome.
GINGER: likes to lick people in the tonsils.
i need to get them framed but couldn't wait to share how awesome they are. raina and audrey, i would LOVE to see how yours turned out, unless your daughter (rcox) or sydney lynn (the burlesque-dancing cat) are too private to share. here are some others that i also find HIGH-larious.
