    I debated whether this was a story, forum post, All Pinball or Lounge post... but here we go!

    Recently I took an illustration and developed it out into an interactive bit of wall-art... combining laser cut wood, LEDs, and colored acrylic bits into a dimensional sculpture. It initially was part of the GOT WOOD? art show at Kettle Art Gallery in Deep Ellum (the best artsy neighborhood of Dallas). I've since sold a handful of made-to-order pieces to individuals on instagram and facebook, who are likely members here on Pinside as well.

    Personally, I suppose I enjoy this piece so much because it combines the interests in pinball, illustration, lasercutting, dimensionality, and interactivity all in one.

    Happy to share it now with the audience who would appreciate it most!

    Youtube is the best way to see it for detail and lighting effect, and to see my hand for scale...

    I'd pay $30-40 for it. Too expensive for me.

    Sorry if that freaked you out. It's actually $300 during the 20% off sale through NYE. After New Years it'll drop down to $300 regular price. It's definitely not for everyone, and priced for the handmade item it is.

    Haha, right. I also wish I could make it in under an hour.

    Ahhhhhh that makes sense then. Although it's too expensive for me it's still cool.

    Thanks mitch !
    Admittedly I wouldn't have the budget for it myself, either. My main medium is poster prints... this is a unique and time consuming, material-heavy piece. Mainly I wanted to share the visuals of it, not trying to sales pitch anybody. Thanks for looking!

    Beautiful! This is the kind of art I can appreciate.

    Really cool! You should update the Etsy post to indicate it’s a very limited run, or that they are made-to-order. You’re not making 1000 of them, which would have made it easier to price at $40

    Thanks! It’s listed under made-to-order and also says so in the description, but I could perhaps stress more emphatically the limited nature of it.

    So it is! you got my meaning though, just to point out it’s very very limited!
