There are some beautiful etched book plates (Ex Libris) on this site. I like these two.

Photosculpture of the Hokum Scorchers in Los Angeles by Mark Lowrie

Photosculpture of Hokum Scorchers Band Copyright Mark Lowrie
Mark Lowrie makes the coolest photosculptures! He came to my "Dreamgirls and Ukes" gallery show last year in Los Angeles and he took a series of photos of my band, The Hokum Scorchers, playing music at the opening. As you can see, Lou Reimuller is playing a banjo-uke and I am playing the washboard. My fine art paintings and my painted ukes hang to the side of us and behind us. This image shows just a small corner of my entire solo show which featured a total of 15 oil paintings and 13 painted antique ukuleles. Mark made this wonderful photosculpture with the photos he took that night.

Listen to the Hokum Scorchers band here. And on my website.
Mark documented my entire "Dreamgirls and Ukes" art show with his photos!: LINK
Thanks again Mark! It really meant a lot to me to have you there.
