I’ve lost track how many years I’ve known Ray. I’m going to say a decade. We’d bantered virtually and crossed paths years later. I’ve always loved his work and perspective.
When his 50th birthday approached, he asked 50 folks to create art based on this Fisher Price inspired figure that he’s used as a visual statement through the years.
All the entries would be displayed at a gallery for a birthday celebration. I didn’t make the opening, but I did work with my friend Chris Pratt (not that one) who is good with words and ideas, and had the idea of Kinder chocolate. Production was fun and it came together pretty darn good I think. Also? I should try and use a Dremel tool more often.
