AS YOU WISH by Will Pigg
As You Wish by Will Pigg
Hand cut silhouette from the cult classic The Princess Bride.
In the upper right hand corner are 5 rings - these represent the 5 years Buttercup & Wesley were apart. Dread Pirate Roberts' ship is under the 5 rings. Under "As You Wish" is an infinity sign. Below that is the pitcher, from when Buttercup realized that when Wesley was saying "As You Wish", what he meant was "I love you". The two rings next to the pitcher represent them together. Under the rings Wesley is climbing the rope from the Cliffs of Insanity. To the left is Humperdink's castle. Inside the castle is an inverted rat - which are the R.O.U.S. They are both standing on the book that the Grandfather was reading. To the left of Wesley's feet are the poison chalices. And finally, there is a large, tilted heart that forms around the words and the characters.
Will hand draws out the image and scans it in, (to keep it consistent), then redraws it so it is tighter and undeviating, for later use. Then he transfers the image onto a black sheet of heavy card-stock paper and gets to cutting. After it's cut out, he mounts/frames it (if they require framing) by sandwiching it in-between custom-made acrylic panels for a classy, unique, beautiful and contemporary frameless look.

*Acrylic frame cleaning suggestions: Microfiber cloths work best for fingerprints and dust. If it's really dirty, microfiber cloth with very little lukewarm water works too. Avoid using glass cleaners, alcohol, ammonia or all purpose cleaners. Do not use abrasive materials like paper towels or sponges.
