ORIGINAL ETERNAL SUNSHINE RELATED PAINTING

(FIRST VERSION OF THE PAINTING IN JOEL’S APARTMENT)

 

price:  $750.00

 

 

This is an original ACRYLIC painting on canvas board by INTERNATIONALLY KNOWN ETERNAL SUNSHINE ARTIST PAUL PROCH.  It is a slightly smaller first version of the painting chosen by director Michel Gondry to hang in Joel’s apartment in the motion picture ETERNAL SUNSHINE OF THE SPOTLESS MIND (written by CHARLIE KAUFMAN, directed by MICHEL GONDRY, and starring JIM CARREY, KATE WINSLET and ELIJAH WOOD).

 

This is NOT the painting that appears in the movie. It is an initial study for that painting – the equivalent of a rough sketch in drawing, or a first draft in writing. This painting is 16 inches by 20 inches; the final version of the painting, used in the movie, is 18 inches by 24 inches. (See photos for side-by-side comparison of the two paintings, and to see the final version as used in Eternal Sunshine.)

 

Also please note that the painting was NOT done especially for the movie; it was painted in 1990 and chosen for inclusion in ETERNAL SUNSHINE by Michel Gondry when he saw it while visiting the elegantly-appointed home of INTERNATIONALLY KNOWN ETERNAL SUNSHINE ARTIST PAUL PROCH in 2002.

 

An exquisite early and seminal example of the Blemph-O movement, this unique Blemph-O artifact is entitled “Mom, the Wolfman and Tanguy” as an homage to the great surrealist painter Yves Tanguy, who heavily influenced INTERNATIONALLY KNOWN ETERNAL SUNSHINE ARTIST PAUL PROCH, the Blemph-O movement in general, and this painting in particular. In addition, in order to complete this painting, INTERNATIONALLY KNOWN ETERNAL SUNSHINE ARTIST PAUL PROCH went so far as to use SEVERAL COLORS, and brushes he bought in a REAL ART SUPPLY STORE! A rare chance to own a small, tiny, infinitesimal (hardly any, really) part of art and movie history! And, if you lay it down flat, it makes a perfect surface on which to mix cement or practice your tap dancing!

 

The painting is signed and dated by INTERNATIONALLY KNOWN ETERNAL SUNSHINE ARTIST PAUL PROCH (“Proch 1990”) in the lower right-hand corner.  It is NOT framed, although INTERNATIONALLY KNOWN ETERNAL SUNSHINE ARTIST PAUL PROCH will giddilly create a hand-made, hand-painted wooden Blemph-O frame APPROXIMATELY IDENTICAL to the one he made for the painting used in Eternal Sunshine for the winning bidder (see the frame in Eternal Sunshine photos, and photo of detail of one corner of the frame) (for an additonal fee -- commission to be negotiated after purchase).

 

Shipping & handling and insurance to be paid by buyer.

Please do not hesitate to email any questions:  tswacct@hotmail.com

ETERNAL SUNSHINE ART OFFER -- WITH ORIGINAL ART

LIMITED EDITION PORTFOLIO OF 16 SIGNED NUMBERED PRINTS

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 SAMPLE  PORTFOLIO  COVERS

 

 

 

 


All the drawings done
by internationally known artist PAUL PROCH for Joel’s sketchbook in the motion picture ETERNAL SUNSHINE OF THE SPOTLESS MIND (written by CHARLIE KAUFMAN, directed by MICHEL GONDRY, and starring JIM CARREY, KATE WINSLET and ELIJAH WOOD).

 

This portfolio is a collection of 16 prints (9 color prints and 7 black-and-white prints) which comprise all the artwork done especially for Joel’s sketchbook, plus the 3-page comic done by Joel as a boy (which he uses in the movie to... well, you know...), plus the 5 crayon refrigerator-drawings done by Joel as a small child. The artwork on all prints is surrounded by a black border except for the comic pages and the crayon drawings, which have no border.

 

PLEASE NOTE:  The identifying numbers below the images are for ordering information only and ARE NOT reproduced on the actual prints.

 

This portfolio, entitled "Blemph-Olio Number 2: The Fallacious Lobster Drawings," is a signed limited edition set of all 16 prints shown below in a custom folder designed by the artist.  And, each folder is not only adorned by the artist with a hand-drawn border and hand-lettered lettering, but also festooned with A UNIQUE, ONE-OF-A-KIND, FULL-COLOR,  HAND-DRAWN, HAND-COLORED ORIGINAL ILLUSTRATION BY INTERNATIONALLY KNOWN ETERNAL SUNSHINE ARTIST PAUL PROCH! That’s an original piece of color artwork on each and every portfolio, gang!

 

The prints are 8.5” by 11” and are on premium-quality heavy stock paper -- except for the 5 crayon drawings and the 3 comic book pages, which are printed on loose leaf paper, as originally intended for the movie per director Michel Gondry’s instructions. Loose leaf paper! Just like Joel had. Come on, that’s cooooool! Prints 0123, 0124, 0130, 0134, 0135, 0136, 0137 and 0138 are original size; the rest have been slightly reduced in order to better simulate the concept of “uniformity”. (See size comparison chart following this paragraph.) The non-loose-leaf images are centered on the page within a black border with approximately one-inch margins at top and sides, and a one-and-one-half-inch margin at the bottom, more or less, depending on the dimensions of the original artwork.

New Signed and Numbered
Limited Edition
Prints Available --
-- Kate Winslet/
Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind

Price: $50.00
(plus S&H)

Signed limited edition of only 100 prints in existence, if there is such a thing, being offered one time only, ever, in the history of the world, for as long as we both shall live, or 'til Johnny Depp do us part.  And if you think that's saying something, you're a better man than I am. But then again, who isn't ?  Or are they?

 

These prints are the same size as the original watercolor artwork, 11-inches by 14-inches (11” x 14”), and are full-color reproductions of the painting featured in the movie ETERNAL SUNSHINE OF THE SPOTLESS MIND. The original 11" X 14" artwork was done especially for the film in watercolors by the dashing, internationally-known -- albeit destitute -- would-be artist PAUL PROCH.  But what good did it do him?  He's wearing a cardboard belt!  (Heh-heh. A cardboard belt... I must be crazy.)
 

Mr. Proch has been featured in many art exhibitions in galleries from New York City to Eeklo, Belgium, and has been thrown out of more bars in between than you could shake a swizzle stick at, if that's your idea of a good time.  If it isn't your idea of a good time, you can run down an alley and holler "Fish!"  Either way, your guess is as good as mine.
 

The prints are on premium-quality acid-free bristol plate (heavy duty, 108 lb), and are signed and numbered.  Framing is not included.
 

Prints are mailed flat, not rolled.  Shipping and handling by priority mail (2-day delivery) to anywhere in the U.S is $7.50, including insurance.  (We can not be held responsible for non-arrival unless artwork is sent insured.)  For international orders, please query at tswacct@hotmail.com with your location, including postal code.

 






 NEW Signed Limited Edition Hunter S. Thompson Memorial Tribute Prints For Sale
--$25.00 plus S&H--

These are 11-inch by 14-inch (11” x 14”) full-color prints:  high-quality reproductions on premium-quality acid-free bristol plate (heavy duty 2-ply, 157 lb), and are signed and numbered by the artist.  This is a limited edition of only 100 prints.  Framing is not included.

 

The original piece is done in colored pencils, and depicts the late great Doctor Hunter S. Thompson (FEAR AND LOATHING IN LAS VEGAS; HELL'S ANGELS) in front of the fire place in the living room of his legendary fortified compound, Owl Farm, in Woody Creek, Colorado. Inlcuded beneath his image are his three rules for living as put forth in THE GREAT SHARK HUNT: “Live steady. Don’t fuck around. Give anything weird a wide berth.”   The image and text are contained within a red-splatter border in the classic Gonzo style.  This limited edition of prints is a tribute to the King of Gonzo, to coincide with the memorial event of August 20, 2005, presided over by Johnny Depp, during which Thompson’s remains will be blasted from a cannon into the air over his Woody Creek home in accordance with the author’s last wish.  Rest in pieces, Doc!

 

Prints are mailed flat, not rolled.  Shipping and handling by priority mail (2-day delivery) to anywhere in the U.S is $7.50, including insurance.  (We can not be held responsible for non-arrival unless artwork is sent insured.)  For international orders, please query at tswacct@hotmail.com with your location, including postal code.
