Default Stencil Update: Lebron, Wade, and Bosh!

Just finished up 3 new trading card sized pieces. All signed and numbered 1/1 on the reverse side, never to be produced again.

Comments, criticism and recommendations are always appreciated.

Also included is a process photo to show one of the steps in the process. Many people are confused and don't understand what goes into these. The process photo shows 2 layers of stencil that were meticulously and precisely cut, then layered on top of each other and sprayed to create an image when peeled away.

Thanks! I would be willing to sell all 3 as a lot for $60 but I won't be moving them individually.

Haha, the more I look at it the more I see him wearing eye shadow... Drag queen wade. Somebody else mentioned how the word Spaulding on the ball of the Bosh appears to be saying "Failing"..... Ha, my subliminal hatred for the heat found its way in there somehow

Ha, the cutting is indeed very challenging, lots of mistakes along the way and just when I think I have it figured I learn something new.

yessir, although this may be more difficult than anticipated. I'm having trouble finding a suitable image of Durant's face that is ULTRA high res... the process I use requires me to work with ultra high res photos for best results, high res photos are often hard to track down short of paying through the nose with getty images.
