Greg ‘Craola’ Simkins second sketch installment!

I recently caught a rare moment with Greg “Craola” Simkins at his South Bay studio here in LA. We had a lot of fun catching up on life, art, rabbits, and how to keep your friends even after giving them a bad tattoo! Craola shouldn’t have any trouble keeping friends in any case, he is one of the nicest guys you could ever meet, and truly a rare talent. While there Craola brought to life his second sketch video installment for ST. He has also been preparing for his upcoming solo exhibit at Joshua Liner Gallery in NYC. I was privileged to see the nearly finished body of work before it is shipped off and I have to say it is stunning! His paintings are just gorgeous and everyone will be doing themselves a big favor to go see this show when it opens, such beautiful imagery.

I can tell you that this piece, which Craola created for the camera’s of Sketch Theatre will be one of 18 original drawings in the exhibit for sale. The show will open June 5th 2010 and run through July 1st. Check the gallery website here for updates.

And of course check out sketch video installment 02 here!
