About the print:
I think that when I first painted this drawing, I was really wishing I owned an old motorbike and could play the guitar.

This is a digital print on acid free, Neenah uncoated matte 100lb cover paper that is 80% recycled. It was digitally signed by the artist and was numbered by The Working Proof.

PURCHASE $30!




What has inspired you recently?
Neil Young's tunes.

Why did you choose to pair Transportation Alternatives with your print?
I chose to pair my print with Transportation Alternatives, because I am all for steps that help to create a cleaner environment.



How have you seen art transform the world around you?
It can put a smile on someone's dial.

If you could pick one artist to mentor you, who would it be?
Pretty hard question! Working alongside Basquiat would be pretty cool. I like how he seemed to have a very spontaneous and free approach to making a painting. It would be cool to have seen him in action.

Who are some artists you think people should know about?
Michael Swaney, Robin Cameron, Jeremy Blincoe and Cam O'Connell.
