A couple of months ago, my dear friend Sue Selman asked me to make this for her son, Zachary who was having a birthday soon. I was thrilled. I have known Zach for about 10 years, he was a sweet teenager when I met him vacationing with his parents on the beach in Zihuatanejo, Mexico.
He is now a handsome young man of 25 and is sweet and caring as ever.
From what I understand, he really loved getting this for his birthday, and I loved making it for him. Happy belated birthday Zachary! Hope to see you and Holly soon!
Inside a box lid, collaged in maps and layered in green tissue papers are children's wood blocks that spell out a saying attributed to John Lennon:
"everything will be OK in the end, if it's not OK, it's not the end"
a miniature Hackney Carriage and a CAPPELLA drumstick finish the piece.
