YOU WANT THIS SKULL
We are more than excited to present to you this hand printed, 6 color screen print by the one and only David M. Cook. Mr. Cook, also know in some circles as ‘Bonethrower’, creates fine lined, tight stippled images that will make your senses throw in the towel. He is a man of raw talent, needing only a micron and a blank piece of paper, he displays what one can produce with a bit of patience and a pile of creativity. Available now in the Clawhammer Store. Pick one up while they last…
