Yesterday, I was fortunate enough to meet a great artist.
His name is Steve Shepard, and he's from New Orleans.
I met him at the Slotin Folk Art Fesival in Atlanta.
Here are a few examples of his work:
In these small examples, it's hard to see how detailed these pictures are, but as you can see, Steve Shepard has a political bent to a lot of his work and a great sense of humor.
And he loves Elvis!
You can see more, and purchase some of his work at: Shepart.net
Please do go to his website. Or you can see him in person at the Kentuck Festival of the Arts in Tuscaloosa, Alabama on October 17 and 18. (link)
Stece Shepard is the Official Folk Artist of the Daily Irritant. When you go to his site, tell him the perfesser sent ya!
