Do you work from my original artwork?


Digital files, photographic prints, negatives, slides, drawings, etchings, all good.



What kind of images work best?


The best results come when you send me several images to choose from and we take it from there. Keep in mind, the better the original images the better the final thisway|thatway. things to look for are focus, composition, size, etc.  digital files, old school photographic prints, slides,  negatives, drawings, etchings are all good.


Is there a standard size?


Standard size is 16” x 20”, beautifully framed in a black shadowbox ready for hanging.


What are thisway|thatway's made of?


Mostly archival inkjet prints, I have also used silkscreen, laser etching and all kinds of materials, from paper to silk to steel.


Can you make large ones for a corporate/public/private/indoor/outdoor space?


Yes, the way the image changes as you walk by creates a continually changing visual for any location. It's perfect for large spaces as people move past the artwork really comes alive as. Have it tell a story, have it welcome people as the come in and thank them as they leave. Or even use it to divide a space


Will my originals be harmed?


Images are scanned in and the originals are returned unharmed. (Please wrap carefully with a few strong boards to prevent damage during shipping.) Digital files can be uploaded via a drop box or by email



Can you create the images for me?


Yes. See photographing with a Tw|Tw in mind helps to create an even more dramatic, graphic, unique work of art.  A photo shoot can be set-up anywhere. Pets often prefer their own home or a park to a studio, and I will bring snausages.



Should they be black & white or color?


Some people prefer the elegance of black & white, while others prefer to see their lives in vivid color. but don't worry, if the original photo is black and white it can be colorized. Or a color photo can be changed into a beautiful black & white photo.



Can you retouch my photos?


Minor retouching* is included, after that it's $75 an hr. (estimated before)

How long until i can hang it?
