This is a tribute piece I did to honor a generation of accomplished and famous artists and associates that I have admired since I first came to Austin, Texas in the mid 1980's.

Several of them have been friends and clients over the years. From left to right... Blackie White aka. Guy Juke (artist), Artly Snuff, Micael Priest (artist), Danny Garrett (artist), Jim Franklin (artist), Kerry Awn (artist, musician), Jesse Sublett (artist, musician), Alan Schaefer (writer, publisher), Mike Tolleson (lawyer), Sam Yeates (artist), Joe Nick Patoski (writer), Tom Wilmore (collector), Nels Jacobson (writer), Bill Narum (artist) and Terry Raines (printer) at The Wittliff Art Museum Collections.

They were all on hand to sign copies of their new book "Homegrown" featuring there iconic music art that centered around poster art for the legendary music venue Armadillo World Headquarters in Austin, Texas. All the major bands of the 1960s and 1970s graced this iconic stage during that time period. This artwork hung in Austin's City Hall for 1 year and now is in permanent residence at The Wittliff Collections at the Albert B. Alkek Library at Texas State University.

They are responsible for well known album covers and posters for a wide range of major recording artists and a few were cohorts and contributors to the Fabulous Furry Freak Brothers. Bands like ZZ Top, Willie Nelson, Jerry Jeff Walker, Doug Sahm, Freddie Fender, Frank Zappa, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Jimmie Vaughan, Arc Angels, Charlie Sexton, Ugly Americans, Edie Brickell and the New Bohemians, Shake Russell, Fastball, and so many more...
