For almost four years I have painted a WCW (World Championship Wrestling) themed painting a week. In late 2020, I saw #WCW was trending on then twitter. I was confused but thought, "What's this?" Well, it turns out this new #WCW meant Women Crush Wednesday. It was an excuse to post pictures of lovely women in bikinis. Now, I am not opposed to lovely women in bikinis. However, this was the first time society was moving on with out me. For me, WCW will always mean World Championship Wrestling. As a kid, this company meant the world to me. The battle between WCW and NWO was the battle of the century. The ultimate expression of good vs evil. I guess I just wasn't ready to let that go. So I thought I'd post my own WCW image to try and take back the hashtag. It started off with a quick black and white sketch. But soon, it got out of hand, and four years later, I have 140 paintings of Ric Flare, Sting, Goldberg, and the NWO. This April, I'll be launching a Kickstarter in order to put out a hardback coffee table book of all the paintings. Relive the epic battle of the NWO vs WCW through my timeline of paintings. Kickstarter backers will not only get the book, but exclusive paper jackets, original art, and customized bookmarks. Join me as we go back to the 90's and relive the best moments from WCW. This is the book that celebrates where the big boys played.

It was just a godforsaken mountainside, but no place on earth was richer in silver. For a bustling, enterprising America, this was the great bonanza. The dreamers, the restless, the builders, the vultures -- they were lured by the glittering promise of instant riches and survived the brutal hardships of a mining camp to raise a legendary boom town. But some sought more than wealth. Val Trevallion, a loner haunted by a violent past. Grita Redaway, a radiantly beautiful actress driven by an unfulfilled need. Two fiercely independent spirits, together they rose above the challenges of the Comstock to stake a bold claim on the future.
