What a head-banging start to the new year already! We’re on a mission to bring our passions with a vengeance: hard rock, heavy metal and motorcycle riding culture back into our lives and art. Big dreams and plans for new designs that come full circle to where this journey started: wearable and sculptural kick-ass art from Artwork Cubed! Speaking of, here are are some of my coolest custom pieces:
“Tattoo for Sarah” – Custom, hand cut kiln formed glass; hardware fabric and industrial parts. Approx. 8″ sq.
Wrist cuff of leather, copper and stained glass.
“Joe’s Garage” – Hand cut glass lettering/graphics
“Common Thread” – Stainless Steel and Plastic Mesh, Leather cord, Various industrial parts
We started by checking out a set by metalcore band, Play the Victim, to welcome into the family our new 19 year old, vocalist nephew. Great set at Rocketown in Nashville and proud to have another metalhead in the clan! Check out this track http://playthevictimtn.bandcamp.com/track/catalyst and show ’em some love on their facebook page. Gotta keep an eye on the up-and-comers!
This week we raged on at Lamb Of God’s “Sturm und Drang” tour with the mighty Anthrax at Marathon Music Works. KILLER show that also included the band Power Trip who put in a thrashin’ performance. Next month, the relentless, “Repentless” SLAYERRRRRR!!!!! https://www.wmarocks.com/events/detail/slayer-2016-wma. Shout out ya’ll to let us know you’ll be there and we’ll hook up!
We’re on the prowl for future show dates and scheming ways to connect with YOU…we and 68 Artwork Cubed initiates did some major connecting at the July 2015 show. Here’s the coin (logo on reverse) they all got and me, post-show, with a sample of some of the love…washable ink stamps of my logo, one for them…68 for me!
My handwriting on the other…
Afterwards…”The End is an invitation to begin”, (Stephanie Pruitt Gaines from “Close Reading”)
We need you to continue to connect and inspire with us to create awesome new designs to bring to the Nashville metal community. We know you’re out there! Help us bring the 2016 metal evolution and let’s ride!
