Characters Love Tacoma are mixed media assemblage pieces. Each one features a combination of vintage images selected from books or magazines and hand cut. Each is paired with a modern paper. They are all paired with second use frames that often have a past life patina and a little gritty age showing. Each is finished with a phrase that is hand assembled and plays on the image, giving this little city we love a little tongue in cheek love soaked word play. They are designed to give you a chuckle, do a real live LOL, shake your head, and a chance to think about the person you've seen around town that is exactly that person.
