This past weekend I got to check out and meat Donato Giacola and his work and technique really inspired me to keep growing.

Here’s me looking intrigued, I actually looked at the pieces much closer than pictured so that I can learn his skill, kinda like Sylar from Heroes . . .but with out the murder part.
