After almost a year this sketchbook “The Rose Book” went to the printer. Thanks to Tim Hendricks and Guy Waisman for really helping me pull it together. For its grand release, I will be selling it at the Ink & Iron this year on June 7th, 8th, and 9th, which is a great place to pick it up and have it signed by some of the guys in it. It’s 100 pages and will go for only $80.00
This was one of a few favorite moments from the “Left To Right” art show, it was a moment I actually sat down for a second and took a minute with a few dear friends. Sabina Kelly is one of those dear friends. She is a very lovely hard working mother of three, whom I’ve grown to have great respect and admiration for. Sabina is a non stop traveling international Pin Up Model, as well as a host/judge of a television show called Best Ink on the Oxygen network, and a all around great human. I hope the very best for her in all her endeavors and I am proud to call her friend.
This is a great photo of all the guys that were around and helped out before the art show Left to Right
