A few weeks ago, I was working on a poster of a tuxedoed man under a full moon. The painting depicted this man in a ready-to-fly crouch, with roaches covering his arms; these roaches being the means by which this man would fly. It surprisingly caught the eye of Purehoney magazine’s bearded brain, Steev Rullman. He let me know that not only would he want to purchase the poster, he also wanted to feature it as a large 17″x22″ fold-out poster in Purehoney’s upcoming 21st issue.
As if this wasn’t enough to cause my head to be blinded with excitement, he also wanted me to meet up with a writer friend of his named Gabe Laszlo. And so, I did. I actually met with both Steev and Gabe, never having done so before. Both of them are awesome, down to earth type of folks. And this is a good thing, because we are literally on earth after all. Long story short, Gabe picked apart the hollowed watermelon that sits on my shoulders, and we split. Next thing I know, Steev lays out the magazine with the poster inside, an article/interview in the middle, and the Roach man painting on the cover. Heck yah. Saying that it was above and beyond my expectations would be a hideous understatement. Please check out all that Purehoney is up to [here]. I really can’t thank Steev and Gabe enough. If you aren’t in the South FL area, and would like to see the article, check out the online version of the magazine [here], or go to the Hot Air section of this site.
