In another life (or what seems to be), I was a publicist of Keyano Theatre in Fort McMurray and the volunteer president of an organization that produced the interPLAY Festival. It was the early 2000s, when the northern oil sands capital was booming, and people with big dreams were arriving from around the world.
The Sterling Skull Studio in downtown Grande Prairie. We met there yesterday for a wonderful visit and tour. Scattered throughout are a stunning array of unique drawings and designs. Chris creates everything he does by hand and out of his mind. He also keeps meticulous records of each of his projects. In one file, pulled randomly, he finds session notes, reference photos, and various sketches that were done leading up to the final design that was tattooed on the client.
