Why is 2,389 our limited edition print number at Girard Illustration?
Seems random, right?
Not random at all.
Let's take a look at why the number 2,389 was chosen.
Our limited edition prints are special, the number 2,389 was chosen because it is just as special.
Where did the number come from?
The full moon shining bright in the night sky was the source of inspiration.
Science provided the number.
When the moon is furthest from the earth it is 252,088 miles away. 225,623 miles is the closest the earth and moon ever get. The average distance from the earth to the moon is 238,855 miles. Lots of numbers ... and vast distances... but really, why 2,389 for each limited edition print series?
Sometimes our dreams seem so far away that they may never come true, no matter how far we travel the dream path. Other times our dreams loom large in our lives, coming true in ways we could never have anticipated. Yet, most often, our dreams are somewhere in the middle.
With a little luck, and a lot of hard work, our dreams can become a reality, no matter how close or faraway they seem. It's a wonderful feeling to know that with commitment and passion, we can reach for the moon, bringing all our dreams to vibrant life. How lucky we are! We can make the world a more joyful, beautiful, and loving place for all, simply by bringing our dreams to life.
Back to our number – 2,389.
The average distance from the earth to the moon is the middle place, the magic place, where our brightest dreams are waiting for us to bring them into the world. 238,855 was too big a number to make the limited edition prints special. Hmmm, what to do... what to do? If we round off the average distance from the moon to earth to 238,900, then take away the zeros - we arrive at the perfect limited edition print number of 2,389.
A number small enough to keep our limited edition prints special, yet big enough to represent all the dreams we are working towards fulfilling.
