It was really nice when the work was done stepping back and seeing how similar the finished piece was to the digital proposals. I think this is helped in part my making sure the fortunes were scanned and reproduced faithfully the same way the proposal images were made. I also think no small part of the magic is owed to the crew at Signs Now Columbia, and their amazing printer and equipment. The final effect is nothing short of surreal
By the end of the day yesterday, with a little help from my wife Brooke, and my friend Charlie Walters, I was able to complete four of the six fortunes in the field. My day started with pounding 24 poles which serve as the mounts for the fortune signs, then working on getting the signs secured and mounted. I am a little bit sore after the long day, but with some help today should be finished with the install. So far I am very pleased that the piece is looking almost exactly like the proposal images and other models that were made.
