30 Days of Saul Goodman

UPDATE: T-Shirts now available!

What can I say about the Breaking Bad Art Project, except that I was absolutely thrilled to be asked to participate!  Not only is Breaking Bad one of my favorite TV shows currently on TV, but I have been such a fan of the amazing art/posters being created as part of the BreakingGifs campaign.

When I started sketching out ideas for my piece, I kept coming back to my favorite character on the show: the hilarious, slightly corrupt, sleazy but charming, strip-mall layer, Saul Goodman.  What cracks me up about him most is his loud, mismatched, colorful wardrobe.

So I decided to go through each & every episode that Saul was in and document exactly what he was wearing.  Yes, it took forever, but it was great excuse to rewatch 4+ seasons of great TV!  They’re all individual 5in x 5in painted wood panels, each sealed in resin.  Below, in order left to right, I give you 30 Days of Saul Goodman:

    Hi Kiersten-

    I’m completely in love/obsessed with your piece Days of Saul Goodman! I just came across a photo online and that led me to your website. I realize the original is in an art show and has been sold, but have you considered making prints?

    Let me know,
    Anne Morter

    I would also be interested in a high-quality print of the collective panels, would that be possible in the future? Excellent work!

    I am blown away by “30 Days of Saul Goodman”. He is probably my favorite character of the show. I also wondered the same as the inquiring minds above – would LOVE to have a print of this someday.

    Thank you and keep up the good work!

    I bought the last one! Was randomly in Los Angeles for a couple of days, two friends emailed me about the exhibition, and I made it there just an hour before closing. I enjoyed the whole show, but kept coming back to the suits, they were unique and appealing, and 20 years from now it’ll be fun to explain why I have a little painting of an empty suit.

    Wonderful idea, well executed. Thanks!
