Austin's Artwar Notes

Last night I was hanging out with Shop employee Austin England. We were eating dinner and he looked at me and said, "Yeah, I got some art pieces if you want to shoot some photos." This could be a more in depth look at Austin's work.

Walking in, the whole art area is really...visually stimulating. Lots of paintings, drawings, and even a few figures around. Next time you see Austin, ask him about his art. Maybe he'll sell you a piece or two.

Austin is working on a window display for Urban Outfitters in Ybor City, and I got a sneak peek. It's going to be awesome. Go by Urban Outfitters in Ybor in January 2010 to check it out.
Austin getting one of the boxes together for his Urban Outfitters display. It's going to be several individual boxes, all for sale separately.
Some awesome face paintings.
Lots of visual stimulation while paining in Austin's place.
More painted boxes. I don't think these were for Urban Outfitters though.
Some unfinished work.
"Stumped."
Wolf pack.
Sorry you can't really see this. I didn't want to take it out of the frame. I like the way Austin thinks.
Another sick face oriented piece.
Artwar.
Love.
Maybe this is a portrait of a sketchy character we saw at The Hub during the Booze Cruise?
A cool figure.
We should have Austin make trophies for a contest one year.
Pretty accurate description of what's on a mom's mind.
I produced plenty of clouds when I used to smoke grits. Austin still produces clouds.
Thanks for the tour, Austin!
