Bob Osborn, myself and my Knuckle Bob was known

horiyoshi iii tattoo gallery

Bob was known as "OZ" for many years. He published BMX Action, Freestylin', and Homeboy magazines among others. He is the father of RL Osborn, and the great Windy Osborn as well. To have him photograph my bike and I was a really big honor. He drove all the way out from Montana to spend two days of intense work to make it happen. Watch DicE magazine for the upcoming spread we did. This was inside the pro studio we used for part of the shoot. It was raining SHEETS outside, and the ride was SOOO sketchy on I-80 with jockey shift and cowboy boots...hahahahaaa!!!

samurai horiyoshi

Mark is a good buddy, and we started this piece about three or so years back. We are both so busy, that it took this long to finally get the las session in last night. Just a nice, traditional Japanese samurai piece. Just freestyled the background behind some Horiyoshi III based figures.

This is the center of Mark's calf piece...asymetrically placed, but the center! : ) It's of course a great symbol of protection and good luck in Japanese folk tradition to this day.
