Thrift the Gift



First off, I want to thank anyone who follows these updates, and thank you to anyone who has sent me messages or inquiries on this project. Just knowing that others are taking an interest in this vision makes me off-the-wall happy. So yes, thanks! [P.S- No, you don't have to sign-up to leave a comment  :)  ]


So, what did I tell you all? Hm? Didn't I say that Danee123 would be sure to please? He just emailed me a sample picture of the panel, and I am sooooo unbelievably beyond stoked that I couldn't wait to post it! The sample pic has a fatty glare right over his handy work, so i'll post new pics on the detail when I get them. 

For as long as I've known this artist [about 6 years now] he has been slicing and dicing paper to make some of the illest stencils I have ever seen. Come to think of it, back when I first met him, it was  really the first time I had personally met an artist that used stencils and spray paint as one of their main mediums. Stenciling started popping up on the streets in the late LATE 70's and early 80's and over the past few years, stenciling has become a more common form of art. looking at the stencil graphics I see on the street today, I can honestly say that his work has remained on the top of my list when it comes to well-developed and innovative stencil work. His studio is named "Thrift Shoppe Designs" and he specializes in one-of-a-kind customized stencil graphics and sprays them on any surface imaginable- records, clothing, cars, and even super sexy ladies! I just love the idea how something so intricate and delicate [stencils] can exude such a strong and bold  image... God bless X-acto knives. Loving how everything is flowing so well on this piece! Click it. 
Check it. Love it. Hit him up:


Next up to bat from team NorCal is Senor Chikn Skratch ~Oscar P., residing in San Pablo. I met this cat random style, and thought him and his crew would have a good time with this project. they are more collectively known as muralists and wall scribes, so working on this tiny little piece-o-birchwood may restrict them, but I have all the faith they will produce something off the hook, mini-style!
