It's been 20 years!
This month of July marks my linen backing and restoring journey that started 20 years ago!
I remember my first attempt, Staple linen on to the wall, dipping a poster in the bathtub without a screen and cooking rice starch to Rice a Roni.
My girlfriend at that time walks in and asked " what are you doing? Have you gone barking mad?"
I said "probably, but I am going to do this now!
She did leave me after a wile, cited me gone completely mad.
There was no social media/You Tube back then to try to pick up the process.
Silly, but I saved one of my very first attempts from back then ( see pic )
It's been quite the journey and a humbling experience. It took years to build a decent name.
Can't say it wasn't a struggle at times.
After all, who's going to send a poster/s and payment to some dude in Canada?
End of the day, the only reason I am still here and still doing what I love doing, is because of all of you that have supported me at some point throughout the years.
Some of you have come and gone, some of you have come back and some of you never left.
It is remarkable and I am extremely grateful to all of you. Thank you so much!!
