Fringe Focus Begins Their Limited Edition, Laser-Engrave Wood Portrait Series With GROOT!

Chicago artist Rob Loukotka likes wood.  Actually, he likes it a lot, so you can only image how much he LOVED the #1 movie of 2014, ‘Guardians of the Galaxy”, where one of the main characters was, well… MADE out of wood.

In a fitting and somewhat barbaric, even gruesome tribute, Rob done a fantastic laser-engraved portrait of Groot.  Here is what he had to say about the piece in a recent press release.  I am starting my limited edition laser-engraved wood portrait series with… Groot. Groot is wood. The print is wood. It’s a wooden Groot! (If you haven’t seen Guardians of the Galaxy, go right now!)

Each 8 x 8″ wooden Groot portrait is laser engraved into Cherry hardwood boards. This wood is sustainable and grown in the US. Each portrait is hand sanded and finished with danish oil to ensure it’s protected from the elements.

I am also offering a unique 8×8″ frame with included ‘I am Groot’ gallery plaque. Rustic black frames for each wood portrait are just $40. Each frame comes with real glass to protect your portrait, an attached hangar (ready to go up on your wall), and a gallery plaque with the portrait’s title.

Groot wood portraits are engraved by myself here in my Chicago workshop. They are sanded and finished right here, and limited to an edition of just 150. Each portrait will be signed and numbered.
