I don’t know about you, but I am ready to show some summer swimsuit ass cheek, pop open a cold one, gather some good pals and crank the jams up to eleven! Summer months mean there is nothing but all your favorite bands hitting the road, and I’m stoked.
I had the pleasure of collaborating with one of my favorite metal bands, Volcom’s own Valient Thorr, on a project for my blog, Miss Austin. Lead singer, Valient Himself, lent his creative hand on some portraits of yours truly. I am a big fan of his work – his style is bold, entertaining, and uniquely Himself. He pretty much nailed what I wanted by bringing the meat, booze and the don’t-fucking-touch-my-meat-or-you’re-getting-shot attitude. Check it:
Valient Himself is killing it right now, not just with his band, but his drawings are selling as soon as he finishes them. Check out his Etsy store here, and take a peek at some of his other pieces (Prince!) below:
Valient Thorr is bringing their new album, Our Own Masters, to Austin this summer with Gypsyhawk and Ramming Speed. Are they playing in your city? I bet they are! Check their schedule, and get up on it. You’ll get sweaty, get a little tipsy and probably make 10 new friends. One of them more than likely will be Valient Himself.
If you haven’t been over to Miss Austin, shame and spankings for you. Come over, we can blow kisses to each other; I’ll sit on your lap and everything.
