Custom artwork by Ho-Z

This is a custom piece done by Ho-Z. It's one of my favorite photos of my cousin Jay who posed for the Cincinnati Enquirer Magazine back in 1974. He was just 17 back then and I remember staring at the magazine cover each time I went to my grandparent's house. Recently I went to my mom's house and saw it packed away with some old photos and I called dibs on it.

Somehow I thought it would end up on my wall again (since I bought and live in my grandparent's house). But alas my sister hastily offered to refurbish it (and I suspect it is now hanging on her wall) and I've not seen it since. But thanks to the fact that she took a photo of it before (stealing) taking it, and thanks to the talents of my friend; I now have a special version of my old favorite.

I am so lucky to have friends that are cool and talented.


  1. that's a very nice one!!!

    i'm even more determined now to get my own done. but as i've told him waiting till after summer holidays, never know which cool pic i gather of the kids then ^^

  2. Exactly! I have some pics of my kids that I can see him working on. I just got it in the mail today! I can't wait to hang it up. I told him I'd take a pic of it on my wall once I invest in a nice frame. Might be a minute for that.
