One of my latest efforts for Trader Joe's advertises the indulgently rich and irresistibly delicious Maple Leaf Cookies. These are shortbread sandwiches in the shape of a leaf, filled with buttercream maple flavor frosting. They remind me of the maple sugar candies of my New England youth. I can only properly eat one at any sitting though if left alone with the box I would eat them all. My life in Gourmetland is a constant battle between buttery temptation and vegetable virtue. But I don't think "Spinach Leaf" cookies would be so popular.
The "Maple Leaf Cookies" ad is done on painted foamboard, carved and stuck together with all-powerful doublestick tape.
This sign is an "Art By-Product," as it is a commercial effort not created for gallery, show, or collectors; an ephemeral thing here today gone tomorrow. To see real Art Product, please go to my "Quality Art Product" Weblog where you can see my latest Serious Art Work.
