I dated a woman for a few years and it went south. She has a little girl who's father isn't in the picture and I have sort of taken over that role because I am there physically and love her to bits (never had kids of my own.) Lately she's taken a shine to my two arcade machines, Spinal Tap and Lime-Aid, the Lime Arcade.

She has also grown to love Batman and family also due to my influence. Since I don't live with her, I thought it would be nice to make her a cabinet for her place. Almost done. It's nice collaborating on the art, her mother owns a vinyl business making signs and t-shirts. In no particular order, and without many details since I just kind of built it on the fly. It's 5 feet tall, 2 deep, 18 inches wide.

I love that side art of what I am assuming is Gotham City. How did you do that? Stencil or printed vinyl?

cut vinyl! Her mom has a vinyl business, she has all sorts of plotters and cutters and other things I don't understand. The person on the roof is batgirl, I'm not home currently but will post a closeup of her. She's got hair blowing in the wind and such. The purple is painted. I have a big book of batman through the ages and Capri (the lil one) picked out her fav bat logo for the side, without knowing why she was picking one.

The first picture is her recording vocals for an app I am developing for android and ios, she loves being a part of my projects :)

The colors and the artwork on that are fantastic.  Even the shape of the cabinet is fun.

Nice work!

It's wonderful that you're doing this for her, but seeing her picture on this forum (or any other website for that matter) makes me uncomfortable (even if she agreed to your posting it here). At least think about taking her pic down...
