I was invited to do a piece for the “Memories Are Made of This” Show at MunkyKing Store LA. I did sent “Benz & Jilla” to attend at this great event, i’m sure they will have fun there together with Super Cooper who celebrate his 13th birthday today! :] “Benz” loves to wandering around in green plains and does enjoy the the warm summer breeze with his little pull toy named “Jilla”. Benz & Jilla are made out of brass and sapele mahogany wood with a bees wax finish. This is a one off piece, signed & numbered by embossing and you can adopt them today at the show if u like!
Congrats to Cooper! I can’t fly to LA so i’ll carve some more wood chaps here in my studio but if you’re in the area be sure to head over to Munky King Saturday August 18th to meet my “Benz & Jilla” and see all the amazing artwork from the participating artists.
