UPDATE: This book was originally shipping in September. We have decided to change it from paper back to hard cover. Since it is printed in the USA and not out of country the production is taking a little longer than expected. The book is being hand stitched and hand bound in Nashville, Tennessee. We are taking great pride in this book and think it will be something you will very excited about. This book will be a work of art to equally reflect the amount of love we put into painting each piece.
Foreword by Ed Hardy
It all started in 2011 in the Inner Richmond at Eats Restaurant on 50 Clement Street at 2nd Ave. There are five of us involved in this book project but the membership goes beyond us and includes all our friends that have sat at the table with us over the years. It started with Mary Joy Scott, Mike Giant and Derick Montez since we all lived in the hood at the time. Paul Dobleman and Matt Howse joined in soon after and that was our solid crew.
We showed up at breakfast one day with five painted sheets each...one design only on each hand stained watercolor paper. Then we traded the sheets, and added to the sets in a rotation. It was like a game of telephone. The sheets took on a life of their own, each one developing a personality or a theme that was often unexpected, sometimes funny and always satisfying. Our styles merged together seemingly of their own accord...just as the personalities did at the breakfast table. There is a harmony here that is a direct outgrowth of our friendship.
