Four Horsemen finalized

1 Comment

Skulls for Sandro, Jimmy, Michael P, and Dave are finished.   I’ve got all of the shots below.

This first one is for Dave.  Like I said, he’s in bio-medicine and that shape on the forehead is supposed to be an anti-body.

Then there was Sandro, who wanted the infinity helix.  The shape of the ring is all about the infinite anyway.  That’s supposedly the whole thing with wedding bands, right?  They’re a circle – an unending line.  So I took that stupid metaphor and added the sun and moon to it to make it a little more badass.

Then it was on to Michael’s skull.  New Orleans folks are lucky.  They’ve got the whole city to fall back on when they need imagery.  For Michael it was an obvious choice.  What you can’t see here is the longitude and latitude of New Orleans that I carved on the shank.

And then we finished up with my favorite.  This was for Jimmy.  It’s TCB (Taking care of business.)

And here they are all together…that’s over 3500 bucks worth of custom work right there.

The 4 Rings

Since I’m archiving, this is a little strange to type up in retrospect, but I wanted a record of this for my four pals.

I made 4 King Skulls for 4 friends of mine.  These guys couldn’t be more different and you can bet your ass their rings will reflect that.

Jimmy – a badass musician, writer, and actor who knows more about Johnny Cash, Dylan, and Elvis than anyone else I know.

Dave – a bio-chemist from Duke University who happens to be working on curing alzheimer’s and cancer among other fuck-scary diseases.

Sandro – a media artist from England who exhibits all over the world and loves film, art, literature, and British ale.

Michael – an athlete from New Orleans.  No bigger fan of the Saints on this planet.  Lives in California now and works for some hotshot film school.
