Stand-up Comedian

Immortalized in Decoupage

I’ve recently discovered a new level of stand-up comedy fame that I didn’t even know existed. As I was working in Tampa, FL, I noticed that there was a newspaper article on the wall that was mounted on wood and coated with a clear, plastic-like lacquer. This is known in the craft world as “decoupage”. Normally I wouldn’t have thought much about it… but amidst a sea of standard, run-of-the-mill headshots in crappy black frames, this decoupaged article really stood out. And the best part is that the article was about my friend, Brett Leake. In that little comedy club in Tampa, FL… Brett Leake has been immortalized in decoupage. Before seeing that, I was content for my headshot to occupy the same 8” x 10” space as all the others, but now there’s a new level to be attained. Time to add a line to the long-term goal list… I want my headshots lacquered.
