We were also lucky enough to have been involved in the "Abrasions" skateboard project years ago with Sean Crofoot and Soba. We were able to purchase some of the boards from that show and they have turned into quite the conversation pieces for the visitors who drop in to Pulse. Above is the board from hyper-talented artist Gunnar. It has a biblical feel with his take on the serpent from Adam and Eve, yet with his trademark twists. Gunnar recently headed back to Ohio, so you can check him out there.http://www.myspace.com/artofgunnar
From the same minds that brought you "EXPERT TAILORING" and "FULL COVERAGE" this project promises to be the best yet. I believe them, but I don't know how you top "FULL COVERAGE"? I own hundreds of art books, and that is the nicest book I own hands down. We are also very excited that Pulse is one of the chosen retailers for this book. They always do very limited runs, I think the last book sold out in a month, so be ready. I will keep you updated as things progress,as well as post an artist list soon, the bar is going up again...game changer...
Here is a mockup of the how some of the pages are going to gatefold.
The book is also going to have an oversize format, and a slipcase. These guys always bring the best qualitity to their projects.
Also from the walls we bring out one of Eric Merrill's early water color's. This scarab piece just wet our appetite for more paintings from this highly skilled artist. No one gets technically better, faster than Eric. When he starts out in medium it only takes him a few pieces before he is doing amazing work, great talent. http://www.hopegallerytattoo.com/
