Sam Larson and the Artwork of the Black Fountain

so, one of the things that we both think is pretty great is good artwork, which we strive to incorporate into whatever we are doing with old blood.  seth's a designer but he'll tell you he's not an illustrator, and brady cant really draw either.  so we tend to look for some outside inspiration when it comes to pedal art.  

brady was out on the road working a few months back and met a tour manager named jeff pereira who had mentioned a buddy of his, sam larson from san diego.  sam does amazing work; we especially like his tiny illustrations that look to be done with micron pens and watercolor.  we started the art convo with him and threw around some ideas for the black fountain.  what he sent over was rad and fit exactly the vibe we were going for.  he was kind enough to send us the originals which we're going to frame and hang in obhq.  seeing his process and approach is inspiring.  so thanks jeff, for introducing us to him.  and thanks sam, for being rad.

look sam up on his website steelbison.com as well as his instagram @samlarson.
