Art in the Making

In 2005 Toby had the opportunity to be a part of an art collaboration. The idea was to raise money for a tattoo website that was in need of financial support.

The collaboration was months in the making between a few different tattoo artist.

Toby was one of the first artists to work on the project. I can remember him painting on it when it was nothing but a partially blank canvass...

After he did his contribution to the piece he shipped it on its way to the next artist, and then the next, and the next, etc. Although Toby saw pics on the net of the finished piece, I never saw the masterpiece until the other day....5 years later.

Toby kept in contact with the head of this project to ensure that he would get a print of the finished project to no avail.

Finally, after 5 years he finally received the piece of art via UPS....the original piece of art!! We were so excited. The original is so much better than a print.

Our plan is to have it framed and display it proudly in the living area of our home.

Here is a pic of the piece....

Cool huh????
