Portrait session with Dwid, Richmond, Virginia. April, 2017.

Dwid Hellion, frontman for legendary hardcore / metal band Integrity, recently sat for a portrait during my U-haul sessions outside of the United Blood hardcore and punk festival in Richmond, Virginia.  I have listened to Integrity for the better part of the last 20 years and it was a real treat to get a few minutes to talk with Dwid and make his portrait.

Todd Jones, frontman / maniac behind Nails and contributor / writer for an endless roster of excellent hardcore and punk bands, sat for a portrait during the marathon “Uhaul Sessions” last month outside of Richmond, Virginia’s United Blood festival.  Todd was a great sitter and delivered a dose of intensity to his time in the studio.

Jacky Flav, one of the masterminds behind Richmond’s High Point Barbershop, sat for a portrait during the marathon “Uhaul Sessions” outside of the United Blood punk and hardcore festival this past month.  While the sitting was brief, I enjoyed catching up with a new buddy and appreciate him spreading the news about the studio.

Portrait session with Shatty, Richmond, Virginia. April, 2017.

While working out of my mobile studio in Richmond, Virginia my old pal told me that I had to meet his friend Shatice, a.k.a. Shatty, and ask her to sit for a portrait.  Shatty was funny, confident and a great sitter – she was far more relaxed with the experience than most of the weekend’s sitters and her portrait shows it.

Portrait session with Anderson, Richmond, Virginia. April, 2017.

Anderson, a fantastic filmmaker, frontman and an old friend, visited my mobile studio in Richmond, Virginia and sat for a series of portraits.  The mobile studio – set up outside of the United Blood punk and hardcore music festival – was just getting ready for sitters when Anderson walked by.  I delighted in grabbing him and guilting him into sitting for me.

Tad, a buddy from DC, recently sat for a portrait in my mobile studio outside of the United Blood hardcore and punk rock festival in Richmond, Virginia.  Tad is a great tattoo artist at Georgetown’s Jinx Proof and plays in D.C. Disorder, who performed at the fest and were excellent.

Portrait session with Carl Severson, Holmdel, New Jersey. October, 2016.

I recently collaborated with Carl Severson, head honcho at Good Fight Entertainment and an old friend of mine, on a series of portraits while visiting New Jersey.  Carl saw some of my recent portraiture and suggested a collaboration to use for business purposes and, as an artist can only wish for, simply told me to do what I do.  Fantastic, right?
