As many of you know, Martin Buechler has left for the summer, and we are unsure of a return date. Because of this, we have temporarily removed his portfolio to avoid booking confusion. He will be missed, and we hope he has a blast training dogs and experiencing the US!

Rob Beresford is currently out of town bettering himself as an artist, learning, and growing at the Explorer Tattoo Conference, and he will be back in the studio Thursday June 22, 2017.

We will be closed on the 4th of July, and re-open for normal hours on July 5th. 

Chris Garcia will be out of the studio July 5-21, and will be back normal hours July 22.

Lastly, Michael Truitt will be returning for a guest spot July 26-29, and we are stoked to have him back! Find a brief portfolio here.
