This is an original print of Being Made by Brian Scala.


Sean Mattea was once a preeminent rock singer. From 1993 to 2005, his band, Black Swan, sold millions of records, garnered significant radio airplay and performed sold out shows all over the world. While the stars aligned perfectly to their ascent into rock n’ roll immortality, young Sean suffered through the most human of maturations. Personal failures and unspeakable tragedy would accompany him as he struggled to maintain his career. 

All the while, Billie Shaw experienced a similar rise to prominence as an elite women’s basketball player. Throughout the 1990’s and into the new millennium, her professional greatness was also marred by tragedy, family heartbreak and personal shortcomings. Despite their professional successes, they both lacked what was truly important in life. 

Once Sean and Billie met, they realized that not only were they very much alike, but a greater power was trying to bring them together the whole time. For years, Sean and Billie thought they had it made. Little did they know they were “Being Made."
