What They’re Saying

They say ‘word of mouth’ is the best recommendation. We don’t know who ‘they’ are but we agree and are posting some of the kool comments we’ve received.

Allen Hightower – Just got back from my first panel jam a few days ago……and all I can say is WOW! Leaving there to come home, I just felt so FULL, full of knowledge, full of inspiration and full of respect! Those that follow me know I’m a sentimental person, I value the things you can’t put a value on…..

I finally got to meet my long time mentor and great friend Jack Lindenberger, not only was it great to meet the man I consider family but his lovely wife too! Jack not only shared more knowledge me with but also passed down several brushes to me right out of his box topping it off with one paticular brush…..Jack gave me a brush that his mentor gave him years ago, one I have heard him speak highly of many times that has passed on some time ago…..those are things that you can’t put a value on and I’ll cherish forever!….
Scal Remsik is an artist I have followed and looked up to for a long time, not only did I get to meet him and see his work in person but as I was turning his corner one day he reached his hand out and said “here’s theVon Dago brush I was talking about take it for a spin” I said ok where? He pointed to his panel he was working on, so I got to pull line for line with one of my idols and later knowing what it meant to me he added my name to the panel…….those are the things ya can’t put a value on!
I got to meet another one of the stripers I admire so much Mr. Alex Hamilton a super kind and humble guy that his laser sharpe work is even more stunning in person!
Met a good friend in Scott Menke shared alot of laughs and good times and brought home a panel he gave me!
Got to meet n hang out with the great Nick Hartzell, another mind blowing artist that is cool as the other side of the pillow!!!
Most importantly the guys of Krazy Paint John JC Carollo, Dave Cooz Cusimano, Don Clark, Mark W Hagstrom……you guys topped the cake, not sure if I ever felt more welcomed or appreciated as an artist and person! Thanx for giving me the opportunity to have these memories!
I posted this long thank you and appreciation post here bc I want everyone that may read it to know how valuable these events can be and how special the ones I’ve mentioned really are!!! There tons more that I met and appreciate Art Simpson Mike Casey Casey Kennel, Mike Abrams,Cassandra Seth Robert Allen Dustin McClure just tons n tons if I left anyone out hunt me down at the next one lol
I’ve said it many times……I sign every piece of work I do BUT this will never be about me, it’s about all the ones who came before me and have influenced and impacted me in my journey of what I love to do! When I sign “Hightower” it really means all of you, much love and respect, God bless!

Alex Hamilton – “THANK YOU! Krazy Paint Krew, This was the best Panel Jam I have ever been to! I can’t wait to come back again next year. I had a great time and met a lot of really cool people. Thanks again.”

VonSassy Tombe – “Thank you, John Carollo and all you guys at Krazy Paint. I was so honored to be a part of your auction because of the cause, but also because Mark W HagstromDave Cooz CusimanoRyan Mohr and you, John, have some of the biggest hearts out there. You all have given me support and encouragement along with some great advice. I appreciate the fact that you would even take the time to give a rookie some tips! I also love reading the friendly and sometimes very funny banter between you guys. It always makes me smile and warms my heart to see the friendship you all have. Thank you so much for letting me be a part of that and helping me get involved! I’m looking forward to next year and painting up some more stuff for you…. Thank you for the kind words it means the world to me.”
