Here we go again!!!! We will be holding our second tattoos for charity event this coming Saturday, December 14th from 12-4pm.
This time around we will be donating the profits the family of VCU art teacher Kerry Talbott. Kerry had a huge impact on many illustrators in and around Richmond, including some of the Loose Screw artists. He recently passed away, leaving behind a wife and children. SO, this Saturday come out to support this wonderful cause and get one of these Kerry originals tattooed on you. We will donate all profits from merch sold that day to his family, and we will also gladly accept any donations. Hope to see you Saturday!!!!!
More and more awesome stuff has just gotten to us; the amazing swag just keeps on coming!! We just got in an amazing reprint of the popular Heraldry T-Shirts, this time in black!! The guys over at Triple Stamp Press went medieval with these and knocked them outta the park; the quality is really top notch!
As you recall, Jesse Smith put together his own coat of arms and his good friend Craola put together some sweet lettering to finish it out. We’re now doing a limited run of the shirts and, like always, we expect them to fly off the shelves!! If you are interested in scooping one of these up, click here.
Jesse Smith, Jime Litwalk and Craig Foster have all put together designs for the Snactoo line, and this here deck is Jesse’s contribution. The decks are Vinyl wrapped which means that like everything else on Snactoos, these are really high quality art. Every deck ordered also comes with a Jesse Smith Sticker of the board design. It’s like two for the price of one!! You can pick up the Jesse Smith deck here.
Jesse Smith and Dan Hazelton have been working together on collaborations for the last five years or so, and now we have yet another KILLER piece of work to share with you. This is “Rooted” and it is now available for purchase right HERE. This is only the second deck put out by Jesse, and if you are a fan of either artist, it is a MUST HAVE for your collection. Thanks to the very talented Joe Eastman of the WRV skate team for testing it out!
Mark your calendars folks! On December 14th, Loose Screw Tattoo will be having it’s second Charity Tattoo Day!!
This event is in honor of Kerry Talbott, a local illustrator and teacher. Kerry was a close friend and mentor to many illustrators in and around Richmond. Over the past thirteen years, he had taught at VCU where many artists have learned under him and grown from his quirky stylings and good humor. It’s safe to say that, ourselves included, Kerry has had an impact on the way many Richmond illustrators make their art, see the world, and find humor in everything. Last month, Kerry passed away, leaving behind a wife and children.
In honor of Kerry, we will be holding a Charity Tattoo Day on December 14th from Noon to 4PM. Come on down to grab a tattoo of a Kerry Talbott original character from the amazing artists at Loose Screw Tattoo while you can!! Check out Kerry’s website, here to see the kind of amazing work you have to look forward to. All proceeds will go toward Kerry’s family, so take some time to make a difference!
Over the next few weeks, the artists here will be putting together sheets of Kerry’s designs; so keep an ear to the ground for more updates about this great event. We look forward to seeing you all there!
