“Hello, I’m Johnny Cash…...........”
John R. “Johnny” Cash (February 26, 1932 – September 12, 2003) was an American singer-songwriter, actor, and author, who has been called one of the most influential musicians of the 20th century. – Wikipedia
I was asked to create this cutting by a co-worker of mine. I didn’t want to at first, mainly because I think there are a lot better pictures of Johnny than this one – then I started reading about the background and meaning of this picture and I am now happy I was asked.
While I will say “Sorry” for the rather vulgar portrayal of Johnny Cash, I urge you to read the following web page that prompted this ad (Pic 2) to be run in Billboard Magazine on March 25, 1998.
The wood used is solid American Elm which I milled myself and is around 1/4 inch thick.
Piece measures 7 1/2×11 inches overall.
Finish is a quick soak in lemon oil and then backed with thick felt.
