Pictured above are some amazing works by my internet tattoo homie, the talented David Tevenal. We've followed eachother for quite some time and always seem to be on the same page from an artists point of view. A few months back I completed a full color rendering of Dave tattooing from a video he was interviewed in recently. I shared it with him by mailing a copy to him in Ohio because after all, sharing is caring.
Yesterday Dave made a post on IG about releasing a limited run of new sketchbooks featuring all his new work. I commented on the post about how I don't own any of his art/books because they sell out before I can blink. Like a new pair of Jordans in a den full of sneakerheads, can't keep his stuff on the shelves.
To my complete surprise, Dave replies instantly to my comment claiming that I would receive a care package from him as a thanks for sending him the portrait I drew. Words can't explain how stoked I am to receive said package. What's it gonna be? No idea. But it doesn't matter. It's from David Tevenal. One of my all-time favorite tattooers/artists in the biz.
Dave if you're reading this...you my friend have impeccably great taste and possess the qualities of a genuinely good human being. Thanks and cheers.
In other good news, my elephant painting traveled safely to good ol New Orleans to be with its new owner. The new owner is very happy, the shipping was super cheap and it made it there all in one piece thank gosh. Residents of Louisiana, prepare your eyeballs for some weird visuals.
