Minimalistic wood etchings of Mitch Hedberg quotes

Mar 5, 2012 By Abraham 5

As part of Gallery1988′s “Is This Thing On?” — a show featuring artwork depicting comedians — artist Kiersten Essenpreis pays tribute to Mitch Hedberg. She writes

Mitch suffered from almost paralyzing stage fright and often wore sunglasses while on stage, so he could close his eyes while speaking.  I thought about this a lot will sketching up ideas for my piece, and decided that a straight-forward portrait of Mitch would not suit him.  To me, his words are really what he’d most likely prefer to be remembered for, so I tested out a new technique and created 8 small, wood etchings of my favorite quotes.

More Mitch Hedberg awesomeness…
