I have been working on a commission piece for the past few weeks. This client has seen one of my Orbit pieces in the house of a collector and asked if I could do one for her. The Orbit pieces are made using shoelaces and cotton fabric. The Shoelaces were given to me by the owner of Duke's Shoe Repair in Washington, DC.

Commissions are fun, but tricky. I have started doing two similar pieces for each commission, that way the client can decide which one she likes the best. It works well, because afterwards you have a piece that you might not have done in the first place. Here are images of both pieces I did for this commission. Guess which one the client chose?
