Local USA 829 Apprenticeship Portfolio

Welcome Judges,

Below you will find high resolution photos of my work paired with the corresponding reference material. To make your viewing more convenient, all pieces are labeled with the same filename associated with the Apprenticeship Submission Form and are in the same order.

All photographs used as source material are my own, with the exception of the Jean Mascii poster.

Given the limitations of this format, I thought it beneficial for your evaluation of the reproductions to have the opportunity to view some closeup photos to highlight brushwork and details.

 

Thank you for your time and attention.

Sincerely,

Rob Baird
