Who's a Good Boy?
What's good everyone, I'm AJ Voelpel, founder and creator of Good Boy Originals.
Figured it'd be appropriate to share the inspiration behind GBO, which was really just a passion project of mine back in 2017. It has since grown into a much busier passion project that gives me the unbelievable opportunity to create cool, memorable, and unique art for people around the world.
I'm originally from Westbury, NY (hence the heavy Long Island bias in pieces), I've always had a strong appreciation for art, culture, creating, and being of service...so I guess you could say Good Boys was an inevitable progression.
Clean and cool is the name of the game. The art I produce has always been rooted in simplicity and minimalism. When I started to see how happy my pieces made people, I became fairly obsessed with dialing in my technique and style.
Each piece gets hours of attention and obsession. I mean, my sole intention is to create something that's going to flood you with memories and conversations for as long as it hangs on your wall.
I only use the highest quality museum-grade fine art papers and matting and have become a self-proclaimed expert in matching designs to specific textures.
A majority of my work is based on individual commissions so please don't hesitate to email me your ideas.
I also find inspiration fairly often and create one-off pieces that I list up on my Print Shop, so check back there every so often for some cool sh*t.
Other than that, I always make accessible to chat so don't hesitate to reach out. Thanks so much for visiting and I look forward to creating something for you soon!
