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.
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.
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.
