YOU INSPIRE ME.

Derrick R. Cruz, of Black Sheep & Prodigal Sons, has been on my radar for a while now.  His work is historically rich and insanely crafted.  I love that he makes small batches of limited edition pieces, like his "Mammoth Razor" that he scrimshawed (a process i've been getting really  psyched about trying).  
   
These images are from a recent Selby shoot involving New York entrepreneurs whose craft/trade involves "taking old things and making them new again in interesting ways"
